‘Smooth sailing’ likely for T&T presidential nominee

Presidential nominee Paula Mae Weekes

(Trinidad Express) Presidential nominee Paula Mae Weekes is likely to have her historic elevation into office with full support from both the Government and Opposition benches.

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar told the Express yesterday that she is “strongly considering” co-signing the nomination form.

Persad-Bissessar said she had contacted the Government yesterday seeking clarification and confirmation that Weekes had met the constitutional requirements for her appointment.

Concern has been expressed in various quarters on whether Weekes satisfied all requirements necessary for her appointment due to her position as an Appeal Court judge in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
