The Opposition is of the view sitting politicians should not be considered for holding the post of President.
It’s a point made by Oropouche East Member of Parliament, Dr Roodal Moonilal, during a news briefing on Thursday.
On January 20th next year, an election for the next President of Trinidad and Tobago will be held when the Electoral College reconvenes.
A person shall not be a candidate for election as President of this country unless nominated for election by a nomination paper which is signed by the candidate and by twelve or more members of the House of Representatives and is delivered to the Speaker at least seven days before the election.
MP Moonilal said he is not about casting blame on anyone but suggested persons outside of office holders should be nominated for the prestigious position.
