The People’s National Movement is opening nominations again in the constituency of D’Abadie/O’Meara following Ancil Antoine’s unceremonious removal from candidacy. 

The party, so far, has two front runners for the seat; sitting Councillor for Tumpuna Brennon Patterson and sitting Mayor for Arima, Lisa Morris-Julian. 

Screening for the area will be held at 5 pm on Tuesday at Queens Hall in Port of Spain. 

Re-screening comes after Ret. Brigadier Ancil Antoine was removed as the constituency’s candidate. During a virtual platform meeting over the weekend, Antoine referred to the United States as a ‘sh*thole country’.  

Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley made quick work of rescinding his candidacy saying that Antoine’s words were not reflective of the party’s policies.
