Nominations from PNM s
San Fernando East unit are
hardly likely to be in hand
before early next month, PNM
officials indicated yesterday.
San Fernando East recently
agreed to comply with the PNM
leadership s directive to have its
party groups submit nomina-
tions for the candidacy.
This, after protracted discus-
sions between the leadership
and the unit on the issue since
The unit had asked MP
Patrick Manning to assess his
health and address the unit on
January 2 on if his health
allowed him to contest before
The unit said it would be dif-
ficult for groups to submit
nominations, currently due to
the Christmas and New Year s
holidays, and suggested waiting
until Manning s January 2
address before starting screen-
ing on January 3.
The leadership repeatedly
stipulated nominations should
be in by December 22 and San

PNM general secretary Ash-
ton Ford had instructed the unit
on Monday to comply and noti-
fy party groups to submit nom-
inees in seven days. These are
sent to the general secretary
and constituency executive.
Balisier House officials said
yesterday Ford was overseas on
vacation, due back in early Jan-
uary, and not expected in office
until around January 6. They
said any nominations might be
received by PNM s assistant
general secretary Daniel Dook-

Officials said PNM s consti-
tution stated groups must have
a minimum of seven days to
submit nominations and that
period would end on Christmas
Day --- not December 22 --- with
New Year s holidays right after.
They said the constitution did
not give any maximum period
by which to give nominations.
Officials said they therefore
did not anticipate any nomi-
nations submitted until early
January, around the same time
the unit had proposed.
They added: "Nothing might

said he was undergoing his
health assessment next week
with a US doctor who was
coming to T&T to examine him.
A Cuban doctor or local doc-

said at least two opinions were
necessary for his decision.

With tears in her eyes, ailing kidney patient
Sumintra Mungroo yesterday said she is now hop-
ing for a Christmas miracle after her Fyzabad
home was destroyed in a suspected arson attack.
Standing in front the smoking embers of her
home at Saltmine Trace, Mungroo appealed for help
on behalf of her family of five as they tried to make
sense of their loss.
She said her three sons were looking forward to
hanging up Christmas lights yesterday, but they
were instead forced to spend their day rummaging
through the remains of their two-storey wooden
and concrete home.
Her husband Toolsie Ramjit, 52, said there will
be no Christmas for the family this year.
"Everything we had is gone. How could we have
a Christmas now? We have to watch everything we
work hard to build, to make in life, go up in flames,"
he said, shaking his head.
Toolsie said they are not sure how the fire occurred,
but they suspect someone may have set their house
Ramjit said around 4.15 am he was cooking in
the kitchen when he heard a loud explosion and the
sound of breaking glass on the ground floor of their
"I run halfway down the steps and I watch. I see
a hole in the window and I see the fire spreading
on the wall and all over," he said.
"I run back upstairs and wake up my wife and
sons. They was sleeping at the time. I run to the
yard and turn on the hose to wet the house, but
water lock off and the cord for the pump was burnt."
Mungroo said her sons Anand Mungroo, 28, Shiva
and Satish Ramjit, 25 and 15 respectively, woke her
up, grabbed her granddaughter Anjali and ran outside.
The family said they cannot estimate their losses.
Mungroo said they were still paying for three appli-
ances they bought on hire purchase in August. She
also said her son lost $12,000 which he was saving
at home as a downpayment for a car he planned
to buy to surprise her on Christmas Day.
Yesterday, representatives from the Siparia Region-
al Corporation visited the family and promised to
provide a mattress and application forms for social
