Faris Al RawiPublic Relation’s Officer of the People’s National Movement Faris Al Rawi has said that the Constitutional Amendment Bill came like a thief in the night.

The Bill was introduced in Parliament by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar on Monday.

It includes changes to the Parliamentary system by having fixed terms for a Prime Minister, the right to recall Members of Parliament and a run-off vote.
