KPB says she is not stepping down as leader of the UNC

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says she is not stepping down as the leader of the UNC.

There are calls from within her party for her to resign as some members say it is time for new leadership of the UNC.

Persad-Bissessar said it is clear that her detractors are not interested in the welfare of the party as they are not calling for an internal election.

Meanwhile, more billboards were erected yesterday calling for her to step down as head of the party.

The latest were at the Macoya wholesale market, La Romaine and Claxton Bay.

The persons behind it, call themselves a concerned group of UNC members and are led by former government Minister and Senator, Devant Maharaj.

He started the campaign the same week the UNC lost the August 10 General Election.

The Opposition Leader meanwhile says that must be determined by the party’s membership in its upcoming internal election as she said she is far brighter than any of her challengers could be.

However, Former UNC MP Dr Fuad Khan says the UNC elections are not free and fair.

He suggested this while speaking on the Power Breakfast Show, that it is easy for her to issue that challenge as anyone going up against her faces an uphill battle.
