THE Public Services Association (PSA) election that was set to take place later this month has been stopped. This comes after a High Court judge ruled yesterday evening that there were a number of unexplained irregularities in the final voters list, including the duplication of several names as well as the inclusion of names of non-financial members of the union.
In addition to that, Justice Nadia Kangaloo, presiding at the Hall of Justice in Port of Spain, said she found the PSA’s constitution had also been breached by the Election Committee.
