“I don’t know of any other person indicating an interest,” he said.

Current Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo has already indicated his interest in running again.

Ramjattan first announced his interest on May 3, after indicating same to his party.

He had said then, “it is going to be interesting and it is good to have inside political parties, the regular rivalries between leaders.”

Nagamootoo is as shameless and spineless as they come.  Burnham had sued and won a case against him for libel when he was a journalist, now he is sleeping with the enemy in the PNC camp, All in the name of greed and power.
