UNC political leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar is unfazed by party supporters who are upset about the selection of UNC candidates for the August 10 general election. She made this point while addressing a forum hosted by the Ummah Muslim TT Muslim Federation at the Felicity Diplomatic Banquet Hall, Felicity on Sunday.
Persad-Bissessar said there were cries from UNC supporters to “bring the young people” to face the polls. But she observed, “When you make the changes now, well who vex loss.” Persad-Bissessar said she was not worried about those dissenting voices.
“We are going forward and we are going to win.” In the audience were new UNC candidates Saddam Hosein (Barataria/San Juan), Dinesh Rambally (Chaguanas West), Alhoy Hunt (St Joseph) and Ravi Ratiram ( Couva North).
Persad-Bissessar explained that all the younger UNC candidates were people who were not in the limelight.
“In our darkest hour after the 2015 elections, they stayed faithful and loyal to the party.”
