Fri, 23 Oct 2020 06:32:01 +0000 Duke: No election rigging in PSA

PUBLIC Services Association (PSA) president Watson Duke flatly denied claims by rival candidate for the union presidency, Curtis Cuffie, of a plot to use computer software to rig the November 23 election. Cuffie led members of his Concerned Public Officers (CPO) team at a briefing on the steps of the PSA office in Port of Spain on Thursday to level his charges, which Duke countered with two colleagues of his Game Changers slate in a social media video. Cuffie said the candidacy of one of his team’s candidates, Michelle Brown, was now being unlawfully challenged by the Duke team, being up for discussion at Friday’s meeting of the PSA general council. Brown said she was not personally told of any challenge to her nomination. “It seems like Mr Duke and his executive want to postpone the election,” she hit. “You’re trying to find all kind of nonsense to stop the election.” CPO candidate for first vice president Loretta George said it will be a breach of PSA rules for Brown’s nomination to be determined by the general council. She quoted the rules which say a challenge is first determined by the Elections Officer, with any dissatisfied party free to appeal to the Elections Committee whose ruling can in turn be appealed to the genera

Fri, 23 Oct 2020 06:37:55 +0000 Skerritt: Non-contracted players free to ply trade elsewhere

PRESIDENT of Cricket West Indies (CWI) Ricky Skerritt is hoping regional players will choose to play for the West Indies before T20 leagues, but the board will not punish non-contract players for plying their trade around the world. Skerritt, in an interview on the SportsMax Zone, on Tuesday, said CWI has not received a No Objection Certificate from a particular West Indies player and will assume he is not playing in the Lanka (Sri Lanka) Premier League until they receive that document. The CWI president did not mention Russell’s name, but the Jamaican power hitter is the only West Indies player who was drafted to play in the Lanka Premier League (LPL) who chose not to tour New Zealand with the West Indies. The regional team will play New Zealand in three T20s from November 27 to 30, followed by a two-match Test series bowling off on December 3. “That particular player is not contracted to Cricket West Indies. Some years ago the courts basically told Cricket West Indies that you cannot restrain the trade of players you have not contracted otherwise. So where a player like him is not contracted he has every legal right to ply his trade wherever he seeks to or deems appropriate for him to do so even if he is invited to play for Cricket West Indies.
