The Princes Town Constituency Executive for the United National Congress (UNC) has come out in full support of its incumbent Member of Parliament, Barry Padarath, who has been chosen to contest the seat for the party, once more, in the upcoming national poll on August 10th.

A statement of confidence in Mr Padarath was issued today by the constituency executive, and signed by its Chairman, Gowrie Roopnarine.

The full text of the statement, follows…


The Princes Town Constituency Executive fully endorse the decision by Political Leader, Hon. Kamla Persad Bissessar for announcing Mr. Barry Padarath as the UNC’s prospective candidate for Princes Town in the upcoming 2020 General Elections.

Mr. Padarath remains highly favoured among the constituents of Princes Town. Better known in the Princes Town Constituency as “the Pepper Mouth MP’, Padarath continues to demonstrate his competence and ability to represent, voicing the many concerns of his constituents both inside and outside of the Parliament whether it be lobbying for schools to be constructed or even for his constituents who has been without pipe borne water for months.    

Mr. Padarath, being the youngest Member of Parliament in the eleventh Parliament, has taken a vibrant and dynamic approach in serving the constituents of Princes Town over the past five years and now takes his wealth of experience, complimenting a new, young and exciting UNC Team in the 2020 General Elections.

The Princes Town Constituency Executive feels at this important junction in our party’s history, Mr. Padarath is the right candidate to continue representing the people of Princes Town, consolidating on the hard work done over the last five years as we look forward to the next five years with a UNC government under the leadership of the future Prime Minister of Trinidad & Tobago, the Hon. Mrs. Kamla Persad Bissessar.

Mr. Gowrie Roopnarine
UNC Princes Town Constituency Executive
