Princes Town MP Barry Padarath has been granted an exemption to return to Trinidad and Tobago to be screened by the United National Congress (UNC).

Padarath, who is currently in Florida, left the country in March before the closure of Trinidad and Tobago's borders.

On Tuesday, National Security Minister Stuart Young confirmed to Loop News that the Princes Town MP was given the green light to return home.

“He has been granted an exemption. We await his proposed travel details," he said.

Recently, Trinidad and Tobago’s Ambassador to the United Nations Penelope Beckles was also granted an exemption to return to the country.

She was selected as the People’s National Movement (PNM) Arima candidate for the upcoming election.
