Siparia constituency executive pledges support for Kamla
The Siparia Constituency Executive said it is in full support of Kamla Persad-Bissessar ahead of the upcoming United National Congress (UNC) internal election.
In a statement today, Executive said it ‘publicly endorses’ Persad-Bissessar as ‘the most suitable and competent person to continue leading the UNC’.
The Executive said this position is fully supported by all party groups and ‘thousands of members’ within the Siparia constituency.
‘The Siparia Executive takes the opportunity to share some of the many reasons received for the overwhelming support to Mrs Bissessar, including continued care, attention, and support she has shown throughout the toughest periods of the COVID-19 pandemic.
‘As a caring and compassionate leader, Mrs Bissessar offered practical, people-centred solutions at a national level, and in addition, provided much needed social support at the constituency level.’
‘Furthermore Mrs Bissessar was able to transform the UNC into a true national party with mambers and valiant supporters across the length and breadth of Trinidad and Tobago.’
‘The UNC has become a much stronger, more stable, and a more resilient political organisation under [her] leadership.’
‘As such, the Siparia Constituency Executive is honoured to extend their fullest support and endorsement once again for Kamla Persad-Bissessar for political leader [of the UNC].’
Vasant Bharath, who is challenging Persad-Bissessar for leadership of the UNC, has said he is open to an internal election debate.
