UNC ac­tivist De­vant Ma­haraj will file nom­i­na­tion pa­pers this morn­ing for the par­ty’s lead­er­ship con­test along with in­cum­bent Kam­la Per­sad-Bisses­sar and chal­lenger Vas­ant Bharath.

Ma­haraj con­firmed last Fri­day that he will file doc­u­ments as a so­lo con­tender. While he is as crit­i­cal of the cur­rent lead­er­ship as Bharath is Ma­haraj said he is not with Bharath’s slate.

Nom­i­na­tions are open be­tween 8 am to 4 pm to­day for the De­cem­ber 6 in­ter­nal elec­tion where the lead­er­ship and na­tion­al ex­ec­u­tive posts will be con­test­ed. Nom­i­na­tions will be pre­sent­ed at the UNC’s Cou­va head of­fice.

The par­ty’s elec­tion rules man­u­al states that the an­nounce­ment of valid­ly nom­i­nat­ed can­di­dates will be on No­vem­ber 23. That date will al­so be the dead­line for with­draw­al of can­di­dates if any wish to do so af­ter fil­ing pa­pers to­day.

The man­u­al states that posts open for the con­test on De­cem­ber 6 in­clude po­lit­i­cal leader, three deputy lead­ers, chair­man, deputy chair­man, pol­i­cy/strat­e­gy of­fi­cer, ed­u­ca­tion, re­search and elec­tion of­fi­cers, trea­sur­er, par­ty or­gan­is­er, in­ter­na­tion­al re­la­tions of­fi­cers and re­gion­al of­fi­cers.

Per­sad-Bisses­sar is ex­pect­ed to file her pa­pers this morn­ing. No­body could give a time last Fri­day. Bharath will file his pa­pers at 9.45 am, as he stat­ed in a press re­lease last Fri­day.

UNC’s Con­sti­tu­tion states that elect­ed MPs aren’t el­i­gi­ble to seek ex­ec­u­tive posts. As a re­sult Tan­coo, who had func­tioned as gen­er­al sec­re­tary since 2010 when Per­sad-Bisses­sar be­came leader, stepped down re­cent­ly af­ter be­com­ing the Oropouche West MP.

Tan­coo and Per­sad- Bisses­sar are the two longest-serv­ing ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers since the UNC’s 2010 hey­day when the par­ty formed part of the Peo­ple’s Part­ner­ship coali­tion gov­ern­ment.

Out­go­ing PRO Ani­ta Haynes said re­cent­ly she is no longer in that post af­ter be­com­ing Tabaquite MP. New­ly elect­ed MPs Arnold Ram, Rai Rag­bir and Ravi Rati­ram are al­so part of the out­go­ing ex­ec­u­tive.

Per­sad- Bisses­sar’s slate for the con­test is be­ing kept un­der wraps. UNC sources said her team will com­prise youth and ex­pe­ri­ence and in­cludes cer­tain busi­ness peo­ple.

Bharath’s sup­port­ing slate is ex­pect­ed to in­clude at­tor­ney Lar­ry Lal­la (for chair­man) and Bar­ring­ton “Skip­py” Thomas, for­mer ODPM head Dr Stephen Ram­roop and for­mer Cou­va North MP Ra­mona Ram­di­al. He is al­so re­port­ed to have sup­port from cer­tain un­suc­cess­ful gen­er­al elec­tions can­di­dates and nom­i­nees.

Ma­haraj who has no slate is ques­tion­ing whether the process will be free and fair.

The par­ty’s elec­tion rules fol­low the mod­el for the 2017 polls with added COVID-19 reg­u­la­tions. Vot­ers will have to sani­tise their hands and have their tem­per­a­tures tak­en at vot­ing sta­tions, as well as re­move their masks to have their iden­ti­ty ver­i­fied.

Prepa­ra­tions for the in­ter­nal elec­tions have been tak­ing place since No­vem­ber 4 which was the dead­line for mem­ber­ship ap­pli­ca­tions to be in­clud­ed on the pre­lim­i­nary vot­ers’ list. The lists were post­ed in con­stituen­cies from No­vem­ber 9 to last Fri­day ac­cord­ing to elec­tion rules. The post­ing of the fi­nal vot­ers’ lists will be done in all con­stituen­cies on No­vem­ber 23.

Vot­ers’ names must be on the list for them to vote. Hold­ing of mem­ber­ship cards alone won’t fa­cil­i­tate vot­ing. Spe­cial vot­ing will be done on De­cem­ber 3.

Can­di­dates have to pay a non -re­fund­able nom­i­na­tion fee of $500 to­day. Any re­quests for a re­count will have to be made by noon on De­cem­ber 7.

The elec­tion will be su­per­vised by a team head­ed by Ramesh Per­sad-Ma­haraj.

In re­cent days ac­tivists and in­flu­encers from have been lob­by­ing UNC mem­bers and po­ten­tial mem­bers to sub­mit mem­ber­ship forms and vote.
