Wavell Hinds, former West Indies cricketer and present cricket administrator, says he has the support of all three People’s National Party (PNP) councillors in South East St Ann to replace Lisa Hanna as the party’s representative for the area
Hinds shared in a post on Instagram last week that he has applied to be the standard bearer for the constituency.
Hanna, the current member of parliament, shocked politics watchers with her sudden announcement last August that she would be departing from representational politics and would not be participating in the next general elections, due in 2025.
According to Hinds, he has the support of Lydia Richards of the Bensonton division, Ian ‘Trumpet’ Bell of the Beecher Town division, and Lambert Weir of the Claremont division.
The retired cricketer said he also has the support of former councillor for the Moneague division, Lloyd Garrick.
“An inspired aspirant for the constituency of St Ann South Eastern,” wrote Hinds in the post which was accompanied by photographs of him, all three current councillors, and Garrick.
“The only aspirant with the solid support from ALL four (4) multi-term councillors – Comrades Weir, Garrick, Bell and Richards of each division, respectively – Claremont, Moneague, Beecher Town and Bensonton.”
He added that leadership is everything, thanking his fellow Comrades for their support.
