Speaking with the media recently, PAM’s constituency #2 candidate and Team Unity member, Jonel Powell, said that the person would be presented at their public meeting in Dieppe Bay. Without disclosing candidate, Powell told media representatives that they were invited to see, who the young professional candidate would be at Thursday’s meeting.
He noted that the launching of the candidate in constituency #6 is the final piece to the Team Unity’s agenda in relation to candidates.
“It is a young dynamic professional who will certainly give Denzil Douglas a run,” said Powell, as he expressed confidence of winning the seat in Labour’s strong hold of the prime minister.
“I don’t care how long Dr. Douglas has held that seat, he will be challenged, and he will lose that seat come next elections,” Powell posited.
However, even with Powell’s confidence high on winning the seat in constituency #6, the same cannot be said for leader of the People’s Action Movement, Shawn Richards.
In a recent interview with MiyVue.com, Richards was not too optimistic about their candidate in that constituency unseating the incumbent.
He noted that the seat has always swung for the Labour candidate in that district.
“Let us be realistic, we know that the constituency #6 seat is a traditional Labour seat, and it’s going to be very difficult for anyone to unseat the incumbent at this particular time,” said Richards, as he affirmed the proposed candidate is a young individual.
However, this media house understands that the candidate is a civil servant, and he has already begun his groundwork with his campaign.
