Vasant Bharath believes Kamla Persad-Bissessar no longer displays the tenacity, stamina and will to effectively challenge an authoritarian government.
Last night, he held a virtual Unity Platform to reveal his slate of candidates for the upcoming UNC internal elections, will rival candidates led by Mrs. Persad-Bissessar.
Mr. Bharath going through some of what he thought were failures of the PNM government, before turning to what he thought of the current Opposition.
Mr. Bharath also believes that if Mrs. Persad-Bissessar remains leader of the UNC, it will lead only to defeat and failure in future national elections.
The former Trade and Industry Minister says the UNC election is about who could best position the party to return to Government.
Meanwhile, former Couva North MP Ramona Ramdial and former ODPM head Dr. Stephen Ramroop are both on Vasant Bharath’s slate. They will both contest Deputy Leader positions.
Attorney Larry Lalla will contest the Chairmanship of the UNC, while Chef Jason Peru is also on the slate to contest the position of North Western Coordinator.
The elections are being held on December 6th.
