Candidate for Political Leader in the upcoming internal elections for the United National Congress (UNC), Vasant Bharath, says win or lose, he will remain UNC.

He made the assertion as he spoke to the media during his campaign launch today, Friday 30 October 2020.

“If I am not successful at the internal elections, I will continue to be an activist for the UNC,” he stated.

Bharath also noted that although he does not hold a seat in Parliament, he believes the UNC can function with him leading the party and Kamla Persad-Bissessar leading the Opposition in Parliament.

“There is nothing in the Constitution of Trinidad and Tobago or the Constitution of the UNC that suggests or implies that these office holders have to be the same person,” he said.
