Defeated UNC leadership candidate, Dr Fuad Khan says election inequality ensured his loss in Sunday’s election.
Speaking with News Power Now, Dr Khan said he was always at a disadvantage given the resources at the disposal of incumbent leader, Kamla Persad-Bissessar.
Dr Khan expanded upon his claims, listing examples of what he cited as unfair advantages given to Mrs Persad-Bissessar.
He told News Power Now that the result left him with little hope that the leadership of the party will ever see a change such as the one manufactured by Mrs Persad-Bissessar when she managed to wrangle the party’s reins from then leader Basdeo Panday.
Asked what his political future holds, Dr Khan said he will take a while to reflect on this before coming to a decision.
