Jack Warner back as UNC Chairman

(Trinidad Guardian)United National Congress (UNC) members came out in full support of incumbent chairman Jack Warner and resoundingly voted in his favour. The members have spoken, even though the voter turnout was low.  Warner, who is back to serve as the party’s chairman for another term, whipped his lone rival attorney Ashvani Mahabir, claiming a landslide victory. Mahabir was optimistic of unseating Warner and even questioned his leadership style up to Friday. Also making a clean sweep in yesterday’s internal elections was the Nationalists slate led by Dr Roodal Moonilal. San Fernando Mayor Marlene Coudray who vied for the position as one of three political leaders on the Nationalists slate also emerged victorious. Sixty-three candidates vied for 16 positions on the party’s national executive.
