The United National Congress (UNC) have declared victory in four constituencies so far.

According to a tally of votes done by the party’s election team at the UNC’s headquarters in Couva, the party has retained the Siparia, Princes Town, Chaguanas West and Cumuto/Manzanilla constituencies.

The party also has a slight lead in the marginal constituencies of Barataria/San Juan, Chaguanas East and Pointe-a-Pierre.

There is a mood of cautious optimism from supporters gathered outside the party headquarters, as they hope the UNC will be able to defeat the People’s National Movement (PNM).
