Expect the return of Winston “Gypsy” Peters in upcoming elections.

The PNM’s Moruga/Tableland executive, which approved Peters today, is recommending him to the party to replace incumbent MP Lovell Francis.

Peters was already meeting people in Marac yesterday where PNM officials said he received pledges of support.

Today in La Brea, where former minister Robert le Hunte and incumbent Nicole Olivierre are seeking nomination, party groups were voting for a nominee of choice in numbers over 80 per cent.

This, as the ruling PNM has accelerated its nomination process, seeking nominations for 16 outstanding seats by Friday instead of the initial deadline of next Monday.
