by Gail Alexander (Trinidad Guardian) People’s National Movement leader Dr Keith Rowley has rung in the changes within his contingent of deputy political leaders.
Former party chairman Colm Imbert and vice chairman Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly were announced as deputy leaders at last Saturday’s PNM General Council meeting.
PNM officials confirmed this to Guardian Media yesterday.
There’s also been a change in responsibilities for the new deputy leaders.
The party’s political leader normally appoints PNM’s four deputy leaders. However, none were announced at PNM’s convention last December, since ballots for the party’s internal election were still being counted and a leader wasn’t announced at the convention.
Rowley was announced as leader when all ballots were in and tallied after the convention.
