See full text of his press statement below:
Comrades all, I indicated in my interview with Globespan a few months ago and in my Press Statement of November 26, 2021, in relation to any decision to run for the post of Leader of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) at its upcoming 21st Biennial Delegates Congress that, “if nominated I would then consider whether the circumstances allow for me to contest.”
After nominations closed on November 12, 2021, I was informed by way of a letter on November 17, 2021, that I was nominated for three positions including that of Leader. These positions are to serve on the Central Executive Committee of the PNCR.
I have examined all the circumstances and my team and I have decided that we will not engage in the contest at this time.
Basil Williams, SC
Immediate Past Chairman of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR).
Former Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs
