A video of Watson Duke, leader of the Progressive Democratic Patriots(PDP) inadvertently calling for his supporters to “Vote for PNM,” has gone viral.
The 17-second video showed him on the stage addressing his supporters in Lambeau on Wednesday, July 22.
The video showed that on realizing his mistake, he blamed it on “PNM demons.”
“Vote PNM, vote for the PNM. PMM wha, vote for the PDP. Vote PDP. It’s the demons you know. It’s the demons. Folks, hear me. It’s the demons, ” Duke repeatedly said.
Addressing the video, the PDP’s deputy political leader Dr. Faith B. Yisrael said it was “a genuine mistake.”
” The PNM is using the mistake as a distraction from the real issues in Tobago. They have done nothing over the past years and are using this instead of talking about the real issues, ” she told Guardian Media.
” Why is this an issue?” she asked.
