Jack: PM’s direct attack means I won’t be picked

Trinidad and Tobago (Express): Former government minister Jack Warner claimed yesterday Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bisses­­sar has trained her guns on him, which signalled he will definitely not be selec­ted as the United National Cong­ress (UNC) candidate to contest the Chaguanas West by-election.

The UNC is expected to publicly announce and present its candidate tomorrow at 7 p.m., at Pepper Sauce Junction, Endeavour Road, Chaguanas. The Express learned that chairman of the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation Khadijah Ameen, who is also the UNC acting chairman, is tipped to be the party’s choice.

Warner, speaking to the Express by phone, said he will consult with his team on Sunday and decide the way forward. He reiterated he will keep his options open. Warner and Ameen were among those screened by the party’s screening committee on Tuesday. Yesterday, he said despite what decision is made, his focus remains on the Chaguanas West constituency, which he represented since 2010 until his resignation in April this year.

Warner has been campaigning with walkabouts and cottage meetings in the constituency. At the same time, the UNC has also placed focus on the seat by holding its Monday night forum meetings in the area—at Cacandee Grounds in Felicity and at the Munroe Road Hin­du School.

Warner was present as a member of the audience at both meetings. He claimed the Prime Minister’s address at the Munroe Road Hindu School this week sent the message that a battle has been launched against him and he will not be selec­ted by the UNC to contest the by-election.
