The Women’s League of the People’s National Movement (PNM) says it has taken note of the press release issued by Hazel Manning, former Cabinet Minister and wife of the late Prime Minister Patrick Manning.
The league says that both Hazel and Mr Manning remain dear to the heart of the Women’s League, having both contributed immensely to its growth and development over the years.
Social activist Ishmael Samad was bodily thrown out of last night's People's National Movement's political meeting by police, after he interrupted the event to complain about the poor state of some of the country's roads.
Samad, who was seated in the La Horquetta Regional Complex hall, got up holding a newspaper outlining a story of the poor condition of the Guaico Tamana Road when Minister of Works and Transport Rohan Sinanan was about to address constituents, causing the meeting to be disrupted.
The UNC National Women’s Arm says it notes with distaste "the callousness of the PNM Women’s Arm with regards to the disappearance of Anita Mohammed and the recent murder of a young mother at the hands of an abusive partner".
In a statement issued Friday afternoon, the UNC Women's Arm said: "The PNM Women’s Arm failed to stand up for these women and instead chose to issue releases on Nermal “Massive” Gosein latest Chutney soca release and today a release defending their members from public scrutiny regarding their alleged indiscretions that have been made public."
The People's National Movement (PNM) Women’s League has issued a statement saying it wishes to draw the country’s attention to "a disturbing trend emerging from the UNC opposition and its financiers, that is, the use of social media and dissemination of false news to attack PNM members of parliament in the most vile and personal manner".
