Former Trinidad Cabinet Minister Jack Warner has won the by-election for the Chaguanas West seat in the country’s Parliament.

Warner, who had resigned in April following a report that led to questions over his conduct during his time as chair of the CONCACAF regional football body, had formed his own party, the Independent Liberal Party, to contest the seat.

According to preliminary estimates, Warner emerged with a significant majority over challenger Khadijah Ameen, a member of the United National Congress and Avinash Singh, a member of the Opposition People’s National Movement.

The UNC is the majority party in the People’s Partnership, the country’s ruling coalition.

Warner had served as both Works Minister and National Security minister in the Cabinet of Trinidad Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

    The ultimate tragedy of many of our political parties is that they disrespect the views of the supreme body of citizens, the highest Court of the land; the voting public at election time!
