The Constitution of Trinidad and Tobago provides that the three fifths majority can be amended.
This is according to former Minister of Works and Transport and Attorney Fitzgerald Hinds.
Minister Hinds revealed this morning that the Constitution itself allows for its own changing according to the needs an evolving society.
Speaking on Good Morning T&T today the Minister said that special conditions would have to be met before this can occur.
He said when a Bill is taken to parliament that requires a special majority one would expect everyone in the House to take off their political hat and vote based on logic, common sense and good law.
He said that Dr. Roodal Moonilal speaking in the Parliament on behalf of the Opposition Leader and his team informed the PNM that they would not be supporting any Bill that was brought to the Parliament that required a specified majority.
He said that this left the PNM with few options.
