Trinidad & Tobago: Devant to challenge Kamla for leadership

Former government minister Devant Maharaj has signalled he will contest the United National Congress (UNC) internal election, scheduled for next month.

However, he said he’ll only do so based on the response he gets from party chairman Peter Kanhai to his letter, sent yesterday, requesting information on the election.

The UNC’s election for political leader and its national executive is due in November 2020.

Maharaj said he became interested in contesting the internal election after Political Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s “insulting words” at a virtual meeting when she referred to members as “ants” and other insects.
