Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar wrapped up a national day of prayer at Rienzi Complex, Couva, last night by extending a branch of hope to the citizenry saying, “better days are coming.” Speaking with reporters last evening after handing out gifts to scores of supporters, Persad-Bissessar commented on recent polls which showed that her Government had a decline in its performance ratings for the past year. According to recent polls, including last Sunday’s ANSA McAL Psychological Research Centre’s poll in the Sunday Guardian, Persad-Bissessar’s rating has fallen over the last year. The PM said that despite the setbacks, she was committed to making T&T a better place.

    News of a Cabinet reshuffle is scarcely surprising. The People’s Partnership Government having reached the first year milestone, the moment is opportune for reflection and action. The first bloom has faded and Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar must pump fresh blood into her administration if she wishes to give life to her mantra of deliver, deliver, deliver. At the moment, one year later, the phrase is not ringing as loudly as it should. While some ministers have undoubtedly adjusted well to life in government and have managed their portfolios admirably, many remain virtual unknowns a year later, as do their accomplishments.
