Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar has said there is much work still to be done in Trinidad and Tobago. Giving remarks at the reopening of the Red House this morning, Mrs. Persad Bisssessar, speaking on behalf of the population said it is important that legislators work with the same vigour and utilize the same ease, which allowed for resources to be released for the restoration of the Red House, to address the many issues facing the people.
“Our citizens must never be made to feel that politicians found resources to invest in buildings while the basic necessities which are near and dear to them are absent. By doing so we would have defeated the very purpose of Parliamentary democracy,” said the Opposition Leader, as she offered hope for the future.
Mrs. Persad Bissessar said she believes the country can be transformed to achieve what was envisioned by her predecessors – that being a stronger, more prosperous Trinidad and Tobago; “But we can only do so if we unite and work towards this shared vision,” said Persad Bissessar, adding, “the future success of this nation depends on what we do inside of these walls. What we say, promote and create within these chambers will become the reality of our people.
