Minority Leader in the Tobago House of Assembly Kelvon Morris has apologised for nominating Watson Duke for the post of Deputy Chief Secretary.
During a special sitting of the house yesterday when presiding officer Abby Taylor called for any other nominations, other than Dr Faith B Yisrael, Morris rose and said, ‘Duke’.

PNM (People’s National Movement) Councillor Petal Daniel-Benoit attempted to second the motion but that was denied as she is not an elected member of the house.

Dr B Yisrael was then elected
Morris said that while he made the recommendation with the intention of it being a “light moment”, it was not the PNM’s policy to interfere in the affairs of other parties.
