Trinidad & Tobago: ‘No election observers’ – UNC calls for recount in 5 seats

The United National Congress (UNC) is claiming there were discrepancies in the August 10 general election in the absence of election observers.

The party is also not blaming its political leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar for the election outcome and all 18 elected UNCs MPs are standing in full support of their leader.

There is no question of Persad-Bissessar, a former Prime Minister, stepping down at this time as the party’s internal election for political leader is set for 2021.

Speaking at a news conference at D Rampersad building in San Fernando on Tuesday, UNC Public Relations Officer Anita Haynes said the UNC requested recounts in five constituencies: San Fernando West, Toco/Sangre Grande, La Horquetta/Talparo, St Joseph and Tunapuna.
