Young: First class ticket to the US waiting for Jack Warner!

A first-class ticket is waiting to send former UNC chairman Jack Warner to Miami! 

This is the promise of PNM chairman Stuart Young, who made the statement at a PNM public meeting in Chaguanas on Friday night. 

Young, who is also Energy Minister and Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, referred to a television news report which alleged that Warner plans to speak at a UNC public meeting on Monday, to announce that he will join his former political colleagues Kamla Persad-Bissessar and Gary Griffith to fight the local government elections against the PNM. 

An audio clip of Gary Griffith criticising Persad-Bissessar’s work hours when she was prime minister was played moments before Young addressed PNM supporters. 

Griffith served as national security adviser to Persad-Bissessar and national security minister at different times during the tenure of the UNC-led People’s Partnership (PP) coalition. 

Young reminded PNM supporters that Griffith’s National Transformation Alliance (NTA) has formed an alliance with the UNC for the elections because both parties know they cannot defeat the PNM on their own. 

Warner’s voice was also heard in the same clip.
