Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Baroness Patricia Scotland, is still defending her tenure noting that she doesn’t support the argument made by Prime Minister Andrew Holness that her time as leader has left room for challenge.

She was speaking in an extended interview with Garfield Burford on ABS Television on Sunday.

The Dominican born Baroness has faced several allegations of impropriety and nepotism in procurement and management practices.

These allegations have marred her tenure.

She has denied the allegations.

Baroness Scotland was also asked while speaking on ABS TV if she was confident of victory in Kagali, Rwanda when the election is held this June.

She said she’s determined to serve.

Meanwhile, Baroness Scotland says she was surprised by Jamaica’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Kamina Johnson Smith’s bid.
