Political Leader of The United National Congress, Kamla Persad-Bissessar on Sunday unveiled the UNC’s plans for the country, before a large crowd ofsupporters who flooded the Couva South Multi-Purpose Car Park. The party’s launch saw 139 candidates presented for the December 2nd Local Government Elections.
Some of the plans included repealing the Property Tax Act, decriminalisation of marijuana, restarting the laptop program and restarting the Petrotrin refinery.
Urging supporters to come out in their numbers and cast their votes, Persad-Bissessar said, “December 2nd will be no ordinary election.”
Accusing the Government of spending $250 billion in four years on nothing that has stimulated the economy or improved the quality of life for the citizenry, she unveiled the party’s National Economic Transformation Master Plan for T&T via a video presentation.
Persad-Bissessar said the plan is on the party’s website and open for discussions and consultations. In the first 90 days of assuming office, she promised that a UNC government will hit the ground running as she listed plans in every sector, including crime, health, education, and energy. Persad-Bissessar promised that the police service will get the proper resources to bring down the crime and keep the citizenry safe
