PNM gets first female Tobago Council leader

In an historic win, Tracy Davidson-Celestine became this country's first female to lead the People's National Movement's (PNM) Council in Tobago, in the Council's runoff election on January 26, 2020.

This, as the party celebrated its 64th anniversary on the same day.

Davidson-Celestine trounced the Council's political leader Kelvin Charles for a decisive win, with over 60 percent of the votes.

In her victory speech, Davidson-Celestine said she plans to resign as this country's ambassador to Costa Rica "as soon as possible".
