It’s official! Watson Duke has retained his position as president of the Public Services Association (PSA).
The results for Monday’s election was finally announced on Wednesday night, with Duke and his GameChangers team reigning victorious with 1,758 votes.
Second in the race for the PSA presidency was leader of the United Public Officers slate Oral Saunders, with 562 votes.
Reports are that the counting took some time due to the special votes, which slowed the process as the votes had to be counted one by one for each team.
Curtis Cuffie of Concerned Public Officers, who has already expressed dissatisfaction with the results, received 267 votes.
In a video post to his Facebook page last night, Duke thanked the membership, who he called the wind beneath their wings. He said despite the naysayers and evil doers they stood their ground.
He said they would not be wasting any time and have already dispatched a letter to the Minister of Finance, with regard NIB negotiations and will await his response no later than Monday.
And, Duke said they also wrote to Public Administration Minister Marvin Gonzales on the issue of WASA.
