Opposition MP Questions Political Affiliation Of Presidential Nominee, Christine Kangaloo

Before the Electoral College meets to vote on who will become the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago’s next President, Naparima MP Rodney Charles is demanding that Christine Kangaloo publicly resign from the PNM.

MP Charles says as far as he is aware, she has not done so.

This, he says, would make her the first President of our country to be a card carrying, pledged member of a political party. If she isn’t, it is incumbent on her to prove it to the nation.

MP Charles, in a media release, pointed out that Ms Kangaloo has been a PNM Senator and held three PNM Ministerial positions in the Ministry of the Office of the Prime Minister, Ministry of Legal Affairs, Ministry of Science, Technology and Tertiary Education.

He noted that the President must be someone that is independent and free from any party affiliation, not an active politician.

He said the Opposition will continue to completely reject her nomination.

The release went on to state, “If Ms. Kangaloo has any integrity, morality, patriotism and shame, she would decline this nomination. However, failing to do so, she must at minimum, resign from the PNM and pretend to show some form of impartiality.”
