All members of the People’s National Movement (PNM) will be eligible to vote in the upcoming internal elections. So said chairman of the PNM, Franklin Khan, at yesterday’s press briefing at Balisier.

Khan said the purpose of the “one man, one vote” system was to open the forum of the internal elections to public scrutiny. “It would be unethical to disenfranchise the non-financial members of the party to vote in this new system,” Khan said.

Khan also called on all PNM members to gather on the next private members day sitting of the House of Representatives on March 28 when political leader Dr Keith Rowley’s call to stop the awarding of a billion dollar contract to a group of companies which includes Super Industrial Services (SIS), will be debated.

“The PNM sees the awarding of this contract as an act of massive corruption and we hope to see our members out in full force on March 28,” Khan said.

After the meeting, candidate for political leader in the upcoming elections Pennelope Beckles-Robinson spoke with reporters on campaign tactics, and made claims that several members of the PNM were “genuinely afraid” of volunteering themselves for service, because of some apparent bullying in the party’s ranks.

“I don’t have evidence, I am just repeating what was said to me,” Beckles-Robinson said. She claims quite a few members have changed their minds for running for office in the PNM out of fear of being targeted for mudslinging, however she says she intends to run a “clean campaign.”

Asked whether she thought she had a chance to win, given recent polls that favoured Rowley, Beckles-Robinson said: “If I didn’t think I could win l wouldn’t have run.”
