Two persons will be endorsed by United Workers Party (UWP) at the conclusion of its National Council meeting on Sunday, according to recent media reports.
Former Minister for Social Transformation and Public Service Lenard ‘Spider’ Montoute is among those to be endorsed by the party to contest the next general elections.
Members of the UWP Gros Islet branch have thrown their support behind the former minister as the candidate of their choice to contest the next elections.
Montoute had resigned from the Senate in December, 2014 to allow former trade unionist Mary Isaac to replace him.
The UWP member lost the Gros Islet seat in the last elections to Emma Hippolyte by a slim margin.
UWP is hoping to complete its full slate of candidates by the end of this month. The party has already endorsed several candidates, which includes its leader Allen Chastanet.
