There has been concern regarding the Trinidad and Tobago Debates Committee and exactly what transpired when letters were sent both to the Government and the People’s National Movement on the status of the impending debate.
At a news briefing last week, TTDC Chairman Andrew Sabga, explained that the Commission never agreed to hold the debate on July 30th but was in support of a date after Nomination Day.
Mr. Sabga admitted that the TTDC made an error in correspondence sent to the government’s debate negotiation team when it indicated that the Commission had “decided” to host a debate on July 30 when it should have been “proposed”.
However Debate negotiator for the political leader of the United National Congress and the People’s Partnership Attorney At Law Larry Lalla believes that the explanation given by Mr. Sabga is sorely lacking at best.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show on Power 102.1 fm this morning, Mr. Lalla claimed that if the date of the debate was not done early enough there would be a lot lost in translation.
He stated that the Government was pushing for a July 30 date and were uninterested in any other time suggested by the TTDC.
He further noted that it was important the event was an impartial one.
