Apparently supporters of PNCR Presidential candidate-hopeful Basil Williams have commenced an anti-Winston Murray campaign. Murray's East Indian-descent and allegations about his track-record are highlighted in posters plastered all over Georgetown.
However sources close to Williams say the prominent lawyer is not responsible for the anti-Murray/pro-Williams hand-bills that are plastered on the walls of the High Court building and the St. Andrews Kirk fence opposite the Magistrates' Court where both lawyers and their clients frequent.
Some Black activists have in the past expressed concern about the PNCR being led by Murray on grounds that that political party is the last movement that they have to hold on to in this country whose national political landscape is divided along race lines.
While many are pinning their hopes on Murray becoming the candidate in the wake of PNCR leader, Robert Corbin saying that he would not be contesting the presidency in 2011 and would make way for a consensus candidate with a broad appeal, some skeptics believe that he would engineer his way back into the presidential candidacy.
United States-based Political Science Professor, David Hinds recently said on a Internet Radio programme that many Blacks would not support Murray because of his East Indian ancestry, paving the way for Corbin to tell his supporters that there was a lack of consensus and the interest of the party retaining its strength he was the best available option. The poster is seen by some as the handy-work of pro-Corbin operatives, aimed at shafting Murray's ambitions on the basis of race and grassroots popularity, among other reasons.
