Panday prefers back bench
Former opposition leader Basdeo Panday yesterday sat on the Opposition back bench of the Parliament and received more warmth and recognition from the PNM, including from Prime Minister Patrick Manning, than from his own MPs. And history was created as UNC Political Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar occupied the seat of the Opposition Leader in the House.

Kamla ascending
KAMLA Persad-Bissessar’s appointment this week as Leader of the Opposition has rightly been hailed by business and professional groups, as well as by ordinary citizens as an achievement, a special moment in the country’s continuing development.
