Former Cabinet minister and leader of the newly launched Independent Liberation Party (ILP) Jack Warner met briefly with former prime minister and political leader of the United National Congress (UNC) Basdeo Panday yesterday at the Joao Havelange Centre of Excellence in Macoya.
The Sunday Express learned both were attending a wedding ceremony and took the opportunity to exchange a few words.
Sources said sometime after he launched his party in Pierre Road, Felicity, on Friday night, Warner spoke to the former UNC leader.
Asked about the conversation, Warner would only say that “everyone is welcome because my party is open to everybody. If Bas wants to join, he could join”.
Sources also disclosed with the formation of the ILP, as many as three UNC councillors attached to the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation may cross the floor.
They are expected to do so in a few days time, the Sunday Express was informed.
