Independent Candidate in THA election suffers stroke

Anthony Hector, the independent candidate for Black Rock/Whim/Spring Garden in the upcoming Tobago House of Assembly election, has suffered a stroke.

The 58-year-old Hector, was rushed to the Scarborough General Hospital on Saturday where he remains warded at this time.

But this now raises questions as to whether he will continue on or bow out of the election, which is two weeks away.

Hector, a veteran journalist, recently challenged the PNM’s candidate for the area Kelvon Morris to a debate. On his Facebook page, Morris said he was saddened to learn of Hector’s hospitalisation. “It is my heartfelt desire that his condition improves and he is restored to good health.”

PNM Tobago Council chairman Stanford Callender also wished Hector a speedy recovery.

Black Rock/Whim/Spring Garden is currently held by outgoing representative Kelvin Charles.
