PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Former Trinidad Prime Minister Patrick Manning has been discharged from hospital and is “resting comfortable” at his home in San Fernando after collapsing at his constituency office on Thursday.

A statement from Manning’s San Fernando East constituency, said that the 66-year-old former government leader, had suffered a seizure and is now “very alert and responding to people”.

Manning had suffered a stroke in January last year and had become “partly paralysed” from what his office said then had been a “minor stroke”.

He was flown to the United States for further medical treatment and has not been in Parliament since January 2012.
