Trinidad supports Johnson Smith’s bid for Commonwealth secretary-general


(Jamaica Gleaner) Trinidad and Tobago will be supporting Kamina Johnson Smith for secretary-general of the Commonwealth.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley disclosed the twin-island republic’s position at a post-cabinet press briefing.

“In the wider CARICOM, the situation arrived at is one where we now have two CARICOM candidates and, unfortunately, Trinidad and Tobago only has one vote, so we are required now to support either/or of these two candidates,” he said.

Rowley continued: “It is Trinidad and Tobago’s position that we remain consistent and, therefore, our support for one of the CARICOM candidates will be support for Minister Kamina Johnson Smith, the foreign minister of Jamaica, who is representing one of the CARICOM possibilities going forward.”
