ST. VINCENT-POLITICS-Outgoing UN diplomat not prepared to disclose future political ambitions

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, CMC – Outgoing St. Vincent and the Grenadines Ambassador to the United States, Camillo Gonsalves, is not prepared to say now whether or not he will be a candidate in the 2015 general elections.
Gonsalves, the son of Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, returned here last week after serving as the island’s UN ambassador since 2007, amidst speculation he is being tipped to take over the leadership of the ruling Unity Labour Party (ULP).
“I have said countless times in the past that people entering politics should be on the ground before seriously contemplating such a move. Being on the ground does not mean stepping off the plane one day, and declaring a candidacy the next,” he told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC).
