As a small team of six persons committed to our country and party, we draw continuously from the strength and wisdom of our political leader, Mrs Kamla Persad- Bissessar in the daily battles we fight on behalf of the people of this country.
Our support for Mrs Persad- Bissessar is not rooted in any self-interest as the naysayers and armchair critics would say, but in our collective admiration and respect for the strength, resilience and astute leadership of the woman who led the best Government Trinidad and Tobago ever had.
We support our leader as well because the membership, who we place at the centre of this party, have elected her and as a democratic institution we respect their vote.
The Political Leader remains a beacon of hope for this country which is on a rapid downward spiral and the UNC under the leadership of Mrs Persad-Bissessar has taken on the PNM at every opportunity, inside and outside the Parliament and even through the Courts.
Mrs Persad- Bissessar is a leader that listens not to respond, but to understand, guided by her head and her heart which is full of love for the people of Trinidad and Tobago. She has given opportunities to many young people to serve the party and the country at different levels, ensuring at all times to render guidance and advice.
It is the leadership of Mrs Persad- Bissessar which continues to inspire and motivate the activists, members and the Parliamentary arm of the party to continue fighting the oppressive PNM regime. It is her leadership that inspires activists to work together to improve the lives of the people in communities forgotten and neglected by the Government. It is her leadership that will keep the UNC ship steady and take the party back into Government and move this country forward, and so without hesitation we pledge our full support for Mrs Kamla Persad- Bissessar as the Political Leader of the United National Congress.
