The Alliance For Change (AFC) has named Raphael Trotman as its prime ministerial candidate following the withdrawal of Sheila Holder for health reasons last week.

Raphael Trotman is flanked by Cathy Hughes and Khemraj Ramjattan with AFC executive members in the background.

Trotman along with executive member Cathy Hughes had been nominated to replace Holder prompting the `party’s National Executive Committee to meet. Hughes subsequently withdrew at Saturday’s meeting and threw her support behind a Ramjattan/Trotman ticket, the party said.

“I was really very happy and proud to be nominated and to be considered. During the course of our deliberations and through the process we went through this morning I did decide to withdraw my nomination and I decided that my contributions would be best served putting them behind the very capable Khemraj and Raphael who I’ve worked very closely with over the last six to seven years,” Hughes told reporters following the meeting.     more
