Keith Rowley, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago has claimed victory in the country’s elections.
Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar said her UNC party has asked for a recount for three marginal seats and so she was not ready to concede. She said the numbers were close.
“We fought a very good fight,” she said, adding that she was “surprised” at the results.
The PNM claims victory with 22 seats while the UNC secured 19.
The Trinidad and Tobago elections commission will have to declare the results after the recount.
