Donstan Bonn


Chairman of the Congress of the People Carolyn Seepersad-Bachan today announced her decision to offer herself as a candidate for political leader in the party's internal election later this month.



The following is the statement released by Seepersad-Bachan -





Over the past few days I have been discussing with my family, close friends and members of the party my potential candidacy for the political leadership of the Congress of the People (COP). I am thankful and encouraged by the overwhelming support I have been receiving.



I have prayed and sought guidance on this very important life decision.



It is with great humility that I now announce my decision to contest the position of political leader of the Congress of the People (COP).



Tomorrow, Friday June 6th 2014, I will file my nomination papers at 12.30pm at Operations Centre, Charlieville, Chaguanas.



I thank the media, members of the COP and the wider public for their patience while I gave due consideration to my decision.



Respectfully

Carolyn Seepersad-Bachan

Chairman
