Former PNP Councillor, Lydia Richards says she’s confident she’ll win the Bensonton Division in St. Ann as an Independent candidate at the February 26 Local Government Elections.

Richards, who held one of the five PNP seats in the 16-member St. Ann Municipal Corporation, was expelled by the PNP on Thursday following her nomination as an Independent.

On Thursday the party nominated Clovis Gohagen, the Divisional Chairman in Bensonton since 2019, as its candidate.

Speaking with Nationwide News on Friday, Ms. Richards said her expulsion is no surprise.

Despite the turn of events, Lydia Richards says she remains a comrade.
