by Gail Alexander (Trinidad Guardian) Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley has claimed that Jack Warner is back with the United National Congress because Warner wants to be with people who’d make a deal so he wouldn’t be extradited from T&T – and Rowley has warned Sangre Grande against the UNC after certain outgoing UNC councillors there.
Rowley indicated this during Tuesday night’s “Conversations with the Prime Minister” segment in Sangre Grande.
He said it was a tradition that in election week, the People’s National Movement must be in Sangre Grande, adding the party was proud to represent Sangre Grande in the Parliament and would be even prouder to have majority control of its corporation on Monday (for Local Government election).
Isha Ali, of North West Sangre Grande, noting that NC leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar had brought back Warner, asked how someone with extradition issues could be in politics.
Rowley said, “Let’s not be troubled by the resurrection of Jack Warner. All you’re seeing in the shocking reversal of positions between Mr Warner, the UNC and its leader boils down to one simple thing – Jack Warner has some serious extradition difficulties, he wants to be with people who’d make a deal that he wouldn’t be extradited.
