Laurel loses Arima to COP
RODGER SAMUEL of the Congress of the People (COP) whipped Laurel Lezama-Lee Sing for the constituency of Arima, thus ending the People’s National Movement (PNM) 19-year-long stranglehold on this electoral seat.
The challenge we must embrace
The political hush following the natural noise of the recent general election is almost palpable. It is as if the supporters of the long-standing People’s National Movement (PNM) are still stunned by the political tidal wave that so convincingly removed it from power, even as the supporters of the People’s Partnership remain awe-struck by the margin with which it has been given a new mandate.
Congratulations all around!
The nation fully deserves to feel good about itself this week, and congratulations are in order for almost everyone. This begins with the flagbearer of the People’s Partnership, and new Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, who rose from the ashes of a burning UNC to rescue that party in January and then moved on to establish a working alliance with Winston Dookeran’s COP, Ashworth Jack’s Tobago TOP, NJAC and sections of the Trade Union Movement. And all of these elements deserve our congratulations for how they were able to blend into the People’s Partnership. Many thought that they would have begun to fall apart even before the election, but they held together, demonstrating a maturity and sense of common purpose rare in TT politics.
Now for the promised ‘change’
SO the widely expected change of government has taken place. Indeed, the extent of the gains at Monday’s poll may have come as a surprise for even the hastily put together People’s Partnership coalition with its “time for change” mantra.
Pastor Cuffie: Respect Kamla
PENTECOSTAL Pastor Dr Winston Cuffie yesterday congratulated newly Prime Minister-elect, Kamla Persad-Bissessar, on her victory. At the same time he advised the leaders of the People’s Partnership to respect her as Prime Minister and her office.
A night to remember
What compelled the throngs of supporters to leave their homes at midnight to celebrate in and around the Rienzi Complex, Couva, was as obvious as it was outrageous.
Congrats to the new prime minister elect. Now are the going to stop grand standing in Parliament and pass laws that are dear to peoples heart and survival? Are they going to pass an adoption law toallow adoptions between Trinidad and Tobago and the USA? There are so many orphans in Trinidad secondary to mostly drug parents who can’t take care of their kids and relatives in the US cant adopt them because they are not part of the Hague Convention. Help I need adopt my nieces and I can’t return to Trinidad and live for 9 months as Trinidad law dictates
MANNING RUN FROM THE NO CONFIDENCE MOTION IN THE HOUSE,,,BUT CANNOT HID FROM PEOPLE NO CONFIDENCE VOTE
Congrats Lady PM. We now leave the past behind together with Dictator Manning and his bluntly intelligent crew and move ahead.
LADY PM, I AM HAPPY THAT YOU HAVE THE PRIORITIES OF OUR COUNTRY AT HEART AND HAVE BEGAN YOUR PROMISED WORK TO START RESOLVING THEM. PLEASE DO NOT DERAIL FROM THE THE TASK OF BRINGING CRIME DOWN FROM IT’S UNCONTROLLED HIGH SINCE A PEOPLE CAN ONLY PERFORM MORE EFFICIENT IN A SAFE ENVIROMENT AND FOR THOSE OF US WHO WANT TO COME HOME WITH OUR ASSESTS CAN ONLY DO SO KNOWING THAT WE ARE SAFE. Also , keep in mind that when you are making changes in all sectors of our governmental departments, if we don’t change the leaders of the last failed systems, then all we did was changed our PM and will continue to not improve our country.
LADY PM , PEASE DO WHAT YOU MUST AND BRING BACK TO OUR COUNTRY WHAT HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM IT SO LONG AGO , “OUR UNIFIED EXISTENCE WITH EACH OTHER UNDER ANT CONDITION “!
My name is David Seeurattan living in Queens New York but my heart is at home in Trinidad because it’s the only place i can call home and can truely belong. I am a TRINIDADIAN.
GOD BLESS AND GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND TO ALL OF US!
“CONGRATULATIONS” I must say this is a job well done, and I do believe that good things come to those who wait, and the people of Trinidad and Tobago have been waiting long enough for their voices to be heard….Keep up the great work Madame Prime Minister:)
