PNM nominations close, Rowley unopposed

PNM political leader and Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley.

DR KEITH ROWLEY is set to return as political leader of the People’s National Movement (PNM) in the party’s September 30 internal election.

At the close of nominations at 4 pm yesterday, sources said there were no challengers to Rowley, thus paving the way for his return. However, in a surprise development, Chinua Alleyne will now contest the position of general secretary. Sources said Alleyne, nephew of late prime minister Patrick Manning, had initially expressed an interest in contesting the position of youth officer but has decided against it.

Alleyne, who filed his nomination papers for general secretary, yesterday, at Balisier House, Port of Spain, will contest the position as an independent candidate.

He is being challenged for the post by Government senator Foster Cummings, a member of Rowley’s slate. His slate was released in a Whatsapp message on Wednesday. In other developments, sources said former minister in the Ministry of Finance Mariano Browne has decided against contesting the position of vice-chairman. The post is now being contested by Joseph Ross, a former San Juan/Barataria MP and tourism minister, attorney Ronald Boynes – a former chairman of the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation, and Public Utilities Minister Robert Le Hunte. Le Hunte, like Cummings, is also on Rowley’s slate.

Arima councillor Brennon Patterson has thrown his hat into the ring for the position of public relations officer. He is being challenged by former senator Laurel Lezama-Lee Sing.

Positions to be contested unchallenged are lady vice-chairman (Camille Robinson-Regis); treasurer (Howard Chin Lee); labour relations officer (Jennifer Baptiste-Primus); and welfare officer (Joycelyn Bodden).
