VETERAN attorney Israel Khan, SC, intends to apply to join the UNC.
On Thursday Khan joined the chorus of supporters of UNC leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar and her leadership of the party.
In a release, Khan said it was his opinion that she should continue to lead the UNC into the 2025 general election.
He said, “The UNC, under your leadership, fought a good fight and although we (all your supporters) would have wanted at least a 21-20 victory a 19-22 defeat is not too bad.
“It put the UNC in a very good position as Opposition in the Parliament,” he said, adding that the party’s campaign for the next general election starts now.
“In a twinkle of an eye five years would be upon us.
"I am not a card-carrying member of the UNC or any other political party but I am of the view that I can no longer sit on the fence and watch the unnecessary political polarisation of our politics along racial lines. Thus, I am of the view that the time is now most appropriate for me to apply for membership of the UNC.
“Stay strong, active and committed as usual for a better Trinidad and Tobago. God blessings be upon you – the country needs you.”
