Bandleaders demand Pan Trinbago elections before Carnival


Pan Trinbago President Beverly Ramsey-Moore.

In November Ramsey-Moore said the election was postponed in the best interest of the organisation’s elderly membership.

On Monday, bandleaders from City Sun Valley Pan Groove, Belmont Hi-Larks, Diatonic Steel Orchestra, Western Stars Philharmonics, Power Stars, Desperadoes and Trinidad East Side Symphony spoke to the media at Pan Trinbago’s headquarters on Duke and Melbourne Street, Port of Spain.

They condemned Ramsey-Moore for keeping mum on the postponed election and annual general meeting. The last AGM was held in 2018. They also raised concerns about the government’s safe-zone Carnival plans and threatened not to take part in any pan activities until the election happens.

Contacted for comment, Ramsey-Moore paused for a few seconds before saying, “No comment, no comment.”
