PNM candidates chosen for Local Government elections

The People’s National Movement is already looking at the stakes of yet another major election.

This time, the Local Government by-elections.

On Monday, during a screening at Balisier House, the party selected five prospective candidates for five Local Government by-elections.

The PNM announced its candidates, but gave no date for the by-elections, which are expected to be held early next year and are necessary to fill vacancies left by certain councillors who were general election candidates and went on to become Members of Parliament.

The new candidates are for three PNM-held areas and two UNC-held areas.

The candidates are as follows:

Point Fortin/Hollywood –
Leslie Chang Fong.

Princes Town/St Mary’s Hindustan –
Shazam Lalloosingh.

Chaguanas/Cunupia –
Rasheed Ali.

Arima/Arima Central –
Dr Hillary Bernard.

Diego Martin/ Morne Coco Alyce Glen –
Jinelle Schlere-Smart.
