Jack: UNC can’t survive in its current state
Chaguanas West MP Jack Warner believes that it is time that the United National Congress (UNC) rids itself of the political baggage weighing it down. Warner was addressing a sea of supporters who flocked to the Jubilee Recreation Ground, Felicity, on Friday night, following a massive motorcade as he wound up his campaign for the UNC chairmanship.
Warner said the party had no room for people with hate and vendettas, who did not share the vision for an expanded national party. Warner said he had a dream where the “leadership of the party is not aloof and the membership is remembered.” According to Warner, the UNC would not survive in its current state unless changes were made. Citing examples of “dirty political tricks” during the campaign, Warner said a man was paid to mimic him on a radio programme, in front of his office was littered with over 1,000 pamphlets of a certain candidate, while one candidate placed his name on a pamphlet claiming to be part of the Nationalist slate.
Warner also endorsed Herbert Volney and Fuad Khan, who were going for the post of deputy political leader and Lyndira Oudit, who was going for the post of vice chairman.
