Port-of-Spain East Member of Parliament Marlene McDonald has been rushed to hospital to undergo medical tests.
Initial reports had appeared to suggest that McDonald had suffered a stoke just after 1pm this afternoon but Minister of Communication, Stuart Young confirmed that it was not so.
Young told CNC3 that McDonald was feeling unwell and as a precautionary measure she went to the hospital where medical checks are being conducted.
He said that at this stage, thankfully, it does not appear as though she suffered any stroke or heart attack.
He did confirm that the tests are ongoing.
The exact hospital where she was taken was not immediately disclosed.
We will have further updates when we get them.
