Kelvin Charles will face the combined forces of Tracy Davidson-Celestine, Joel Jack and Dr Denise Tsoiafatt-Angus, in Sunday's contest for Political Leader of the PNM's Tobago Council.

It’s official. Three teams will go up against Kelvin Charles, current political leader of the Tobago Council of the People’s National Movement (PNM), in Sunday’s runoff elections.

In a statement on Friday, Team Tracy 2020 said it is part of a group that includes Joel Jack and Dr. Denise Tsoaifatt-Angus—fighting to change the council’s leadership.

“After consultation, and for this point onward Joel Jack, Dr Angus and I have decided we will work together in the best interests of the party,” the Davidson-Celestine team said.

The statement continued: “The results of the internal election for Leadership…have made it clear…70 percent of the party electorate have signalled the desire for leadership change.”

Last Sunday, Kelvin Charles polled 1,513 votes; Joel Jack got 1,066 votes; Dr Denise Tsoiafatt-Angus, 904 votes; and Tracy Davidson-Celestine captured 1,447 votes.

Fresh elections for the post of Political Leader will be held on Sunday between Davidson-Celestine and Charles, as neither of them polled the required constitutional majority necessary to lead the council.
