…SHE came, she saw and she conquered!

King Jack
WORKS and Infrastructure Minister Jack Warner’s popularity continues to grow by leaps and bounds within the United National Congress (UNC) as he convincingly beat his closest rival for chairmanship in the party’s internal elections in Saturday, by a whopping 12,000 votes.

Moonilal to unsuccessful voters: Get regularised

Manning’s son at UNC elections
THE United National Congress (UNC) internal elections ballot-counting exercise on Saturday night had a surprise visitor in the person of David Manning — son of PNM San Fernando East MP Patrick Manning.

Fuad: 80% of UNC membership rejected candidates
It was reported that only 20 per cent of the members eligible to vote in Saturday’s election turned up at polling stations throughout the country.

As the dust settles
As far as the UNC goes, the election did settle some things, the most critical of which was the position of Jack Warner within the Persad-Bissessar Cabinet. In running as an independent against a slate promoted by the PM’s pick for her successor, Mr Warner sent a powerful signal of his personal and political strength within the party that she leads.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS! Hats off to the Nationalists who has overwhelmingly procured votes overall. It must also be noted that Jack Warner indeed has sent a strong WARNing to the People’s Partnership that he isn’t going anywhere! Give JACK his JACKET! He is well loved by the people…

  2. The results of the unc internal elections 2012 cleerly indicate what the people wanted.They voted for sound ideology and progress.They wanted good attitude,good manner of speech,respect for the human being and unity in progress.No person must feel that he is a lord unto himself and that only his opinion will count forever.A good leader listens and informs of decisions taken.
    The party should go on a recruitment drive to enlarge its intellectual base because many people are still out there very willing to serve and offer assistance.
    The party hierachy should call an early closed door meeting,of all persons concerned, to resolve differences aired during the campaign,no media allowed ,no press conference after. This is a party matter.
