This morning the United National Congress successfully defended a challenge to the candidacy of Adrian Ali, the UNC candidate for Munroe Road/Caroni Savannah. The court determined that the ILP’s evidence was insufficient and terminated the case after a single hearing. The legal team is donating all winnings to the United National Congress.
Speaking after the court delivered its judgement, Mrs. Persad-Bissessar said “The court’s judgment today is a sign of victory tomorrow. We move forward into Election Day ready to work. Our campaign teams are inspired by the level of support they are seeing in their walkabouts, cottage meetings and motorcades.”
“The country is ready for a change and the electorate is rejecting the PNM record of taxes, cuts, broken promises and non-delivery in nearly every sector. We feel confident that voters will send the PNM a message tomorrow that enough is enough.”
Submissions were made on behalf Adrian Ali by Mrs Kamla Persad- Bissessar SC leading Mr Gerald Ramdeen and instructed by Mr Saddam Hosein.
