PM hints at retirement

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has hinted that he is preparing for retirement from political life.

Dr Rowley hinted at this when he delivered the feature address at the opening of the newly refurbished Balisier house, the headquarters of the People’s National Movement, on Saturday night.
It was also the PNM’s 68th anniversary as a political party.

Rowley revealed that he is contemplating retirement, following his wife’s decision to retire last year.

The PM’s statement was in response to suggestions from the PNM’s deputy political leaders Rohan Sinanan and Colm Imbert that he would lead the party in the upcoming general election.

However, in his address, Rowley joked that Sinanan and Imbert were not speaking on his behalf.

“My wife retired at the end of the last year and you can imagine how much pressure I am under to come home and meet my other family. So when these fellas came up here and talking about next election in 2030 and 2035, they are not speaking for me,” said the Prime Minister.
