THE United National Congress (UNC) is forging ahead for change. If residents’ feelings in the Tabaquite constituency are a gauge to go on, then change may be welcome. The area’s Member of Parliament, Surujrattan Rambachan, recently announced that he will not be returning to electoral politics.
This after 52 years in the spotlight—as chairman of the St Patrick County Council, Chaguanas mayor and former local government and works minister. Rambachan was elected Tabaquite MP in 2010 and re-elected in 2015. At a political meeting last month, UNC leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar thanked him and said he understood her vision and philosophy to marry the experience of the elders with the youth to bring a new generation of leaders.
