With long-awaited party polls set for next month, the three leading candidates to be the new PNCR Leader were yesterday nominated by various party groups and former General Secretary Aubrey Norton appeared to have the most public support.

The Nomination Day proceedings also confirm-ed that incumbent leader and former President David Granger will not be running for another term. Granger is also on leave from the party.  Once considered a favourite for the post of leader, there was also no sign that the current PNCR chair Volda Lawrence will be contesting.

Norton and the other main contenders, Opposition Leader, Joseph Harmon and former PNC Health Minister Dr Richard Van West-Charles declared that win or lose, they will unite in the opposition’s fight against the PPP/C government.  They, however, differed on if that person should also be Opposition Leader. Analysts say that were Norton to win the leadership, that would spell the end of Harmon’s tenure as Opposition Leader.

Candidate for the leadership of the PNCR, Aubrey Norton says that he was on Saturday blocked by MoneyGram from receiving US$500 and does not believe it was regulatory procedures being adhered to but an abuse of this country’s  anti-money laundering laws that speak to politically exposed persons.

“Yesterday when I went in, I said to the young lady, ‘I am here to collect’. She said to me to give her the reference number and I gave her the reference number. She said, `You are a politician, you are high up in politics and we can’t do nothing here. She said the only way I could get money is from the headquarters,” Norton told Stabroek News when contacted yesterday.

He had on Saturday taken to social media to call for a boycott of the remittance service here.  “I had my own experience with political discrimination at MoneyGram this morning. I went to a MoneyGram location. I gave the cashier the reference number which she placed in the computer. She immediately said you are Aubrey Norton a political figure I can’t gave you any money since headquarters has to approve before I can pay you. She proceeded to tell me this is so because I am a political figure,” he said.
