Benn eyeing Owen
IF FORMER PRIME Minister Owen Arthur completes his term as an MP and decides not to contest the St Peter seat in the next general election, then so will Haynesley Benn.
But if Arthur quits politics earlier, triggering a by-election, then Benn will seek the St Peter seat.
Benn made the comments in an interview with the DAILY NATION yesterday. He spoke during the annual Friends of All Saints Father’s Day luncheon in the All Saints Church Hall, St Peter.
“The current holder of the St Peter seat [Arthur] has indicated he was going the full distance and will carry on right until the [next] general election,” Benn said of his cousin and political rival.
