NACTA: PP still leads PNM after one year
The findings of an opinion survey conducted by NACTA over the last week show the incumbent People's Partnership (PP) Government has lost support while the PNM has managed to hold on to most of its support, just a year after the coalition won office by a landslide. However, if an election were called now, while the PP is likely to lose several seats, it will still retain office though by a narrow majority. Voters do not see any threat to the Government and they do not view the PNM as a viable alternative. The poll also shows Ministers Jack Warner, Roodal Moonilal, Glenn Ramadharsingh, and Vasant Bharath leading their colleagues in ratings for performance as well as in other measurements.

Sweeping changes are expected to be made at several key Government ministries which may see some ministers being removed and others being promoted as Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar and her one-year-old People's Partnership coalition administration celebrate their first anniversary in Government today.
