Sports Minister Anil Roberts says he is unsure of contesting the D’Abadie/O’Meara seat for the 2015 general election. However, Roberts said if Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar selects him to contest the seat, he would topple his opponent. Roberts said he heard the PNM plans to put up Camille Robinson-Regis to win the seat, which was once a PNM stronghold. “I don’t even know if I want to go back up. I don’t know what will happen. That is a long way away. When election comes, we will fight that.”



However, he said if he is given the nod to run for the seat: “I would blow out any PNM. They are shattered.” Roberts, who was with his wife Shandell, spoke to the media yesterday during a walk in Carapo. Carapo is a crime hot spot in his constituency, he said. Many of the residents Roberts spoke to complained about poor drains, crime, unpaved roads, and not having a regular supply of pipe-borne water.
