Trinidad and Tobago has withdrawn its candidature for the Office of Secretary General for the Commonwealth, ending any chance Dr Bhoe Tewarie had of securing the coveted post.

Tewarie, who was the Minister of Planning and Sustainable Development in the Peoples Partnership government, was proposed by the Kamla Persad-Bissessar government last year.

However, in a statement issued on Thursday, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley announced that Trinidad and Tobago would instead be backing the candidacy of Sir Ronald Sanders of Antigua and Barbuda and urged other Commonwealth Caribbean governments to do likewise.

A new Secretary General will be chosen on November.
