A So­ca artiste who was re­cent­ly se­lect­ed to con­test the lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tions for the Unit­ed Na­tion­al Con­gress is now pledg­ing his sup­port for the Peo­ple’s Na­tion­al Move­ment.

So much so, Clint Davis, so­bri­quet, Young Blue, 34 of Co­coyea Vil­lage, per­formed at the launch of PNM can­di­date for Mon Re­pos/Navet Dis­trict Nigel Cout­ti­er’s elec­tion cam­paign and the bless­ing of his of­fice on Dos San­tos Street, Mon Re­pos last Sun­day.


The event was at­tend­ed by Rur­al De­vel­op­ment and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Min­is­ter Kaz­im Ho­sein, San Fer­nan­do East MP Ran­dall Mitchell, San Fer­nan­do May­or Ju­nia Re­grel­lo and sev­er­al in­cum­bent coun­cil­lors.

Davis said he was the pro­posed UNC can­di­date for Mon Re­pos/Navet, but with­drew be­fore nom­i­na­tion day.

He was re­placed by sales clerk, Abi­gail Pe­ters.

Ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports, Davis said he with­drew as a UNC can­di­date as he was not get­ting help to launch his cam­paign.

He said he al­so ob­ject­ed to a “UNC” de­ci­sion to file an in­junc­tion to halt the sale of the re­fin­ery to Pa­tri­ot­ic En­er­gies and Tech­nolo­gies Co. Ltd.

How­ev­er, UNC PRO Ani­ta Hayne said that Davis was among 139 per­sons screened, but he was found il­leg­i­ble as he was not liv­ing with­in the Mon Re­pos/Navet bound­ary.

Those in at­ten­dance said dur­ing his per­for­mance, Davis in­di­cat­ed his sup­port for Cout­ti­er in his bid to rep­re­sent the dis­trict and even went down on his knees and prayed the ‘Our Fa­ther Prayer’.
