Former temporary senator joins calls for UNC leader to step down


    Former temporary senator Larry Lalla has joined the call for Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar to step down as UNC leader.

    In a post on his Facebook page this morning, Mr Lalla says there needs to be change after two General Election defeats.

    He says a political leader must always put the interests of the party, its members and the country above self.

    Mr Lalla echoes a call made by Dr. Fuad Khan, Vasant Bharath, Devant Maharaj, Vashist Maharaj, Kelvin Ramkissoon, Lester Orie and many others.

    On the other hand, several members of the party have expressed support for Mrs Persad-Bissessar including Saddam Hosein, David Lee, Barry Padarath, Dr. Rishad Seecheran, Rodney Charles, Dave Tancoo, Roodal Moonilal and Khadijah Ameen.
