by Gail Alexander (Trinidad Guardian) Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says he’ll be taking careful note of how many people want him to remain as People’s National Movement leader.
And he’s also taking a small wager that somewhere in the Leaders in Service (LIS) group, “or very close to this group,” will be the PNM’s leadership in the next few years.
Rowley spoke about the matters at Thursday’s LIS meeting at Caroline Building, Scarborough, Tobago. The group is bidding to become the PNM’s executive in internal polls on November 26-27 and December 4.
Saying that PNM demonstrates stability, Rowley said there were three groups leading teams in the election and there was no problem, since on December 4 it will be settled one way or another.
On the election, Rowley added, “It will be my decision to take careful note of how many people want me to remain. So, I ask you for your support if you think I’m the best choice. If not, leadership emerges and if you don’t believe me, ask the Republican party in America, all kinda leaders emerge, not necessarily successfully.”
Rowley noted that very early, he’d said he wasn’t putting up a slate.
