Moonilal: Internal elections will not be fair

Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal says the upcoming internal elections of the United National Congress (UNC) will not be fair.

Moonilal is running for political leader of the UNC against Vasant Bharath, and current political and opposition leader, former Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar. Moonilal made the statement on Sunday following a claim by Bharath that an election committee member was present at a strategy meeting for Persad-Bissessar at a home in Tunapuna.

Moonilal also claimed that the general secretary of the party was also present.

He called on chairman of the election committee Dr Rampersad Parasram, to ensure that the elections are free and fair. He also called for the election committee member to resign forthwith if the information on their presence at the meeting was indeed accurate.
