Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves speaking on the recent selection of Colin Graham by the East St George Constituency Council of the NDP, to contest the next general elections says, now would be a good time for Graham to show his numbers.
Speaking with host of the morning scoop Anthony Dennie on StarFm Monday morning, Gonsalves said ;
“You have been talking about A levels and CXC subjects, well this would be a good time for Colin to celebrate with the kids and post his”.
“I mean all these bright young people; It would be an excellent thing for him to post his numbers.”
Gonsalves said the people of ESG said no to a formidable candidate in Dr. Linton Lewis.
“Linton was a hometown boy, a teacher, sang and was part of a band, he did accounting at the Banana Growers Association, he helped to set the IT system at the NCB in the early days, he did Law, gained a Ph.D. in Law, work with the Offshore sector, and the people still said no”.
“I didn’t want to say anything about the matter, but in as much as you spoke about all these young people, I think what he must do is to post his O level and A level results, his Associate or Degree, his qualifications and so on, to see if it would measure up”.
Gonsalves said to leave Lewis and go for Graham, the formulation; well let’s say chalk and cheese is the only one that comes to your mind at this time.
The New Democratic Party (NDP) in a press release said Colin Clifford Bernard Graham has been tapped to represent the party in the East St. George (ESG) constituency in the 2020 elections.
Graham selection process took place during an election on Thursday, 17 August, Mr. Graham emerged victorious over the other two contenders: Bert Francois and Mgrid Punnet.
The next step in the selection process is ratification by the Central Committee. This is scheduled to take place soon.
