Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar has predicted that there will be only one winner following Monday’s local government elections. She said the winner would be the nation of Trinidad and Tobago.
The Prime Minister told News Power Now that while proportional representation has been on the national agenda for some time, the People’s Partnership administration has gone a step further by implementing it in the local government polls this year.
In other election news, Interim Political Leader of the Independent Liberal Party, Jack Warner on Monday afternoon said while things were relatively smooth in most areas, there were some major issues identified in Arima and San Fernando.
Mr. Warner noted that among these issues was the unauthorized use of Sports Minister Anil Roberts’ Prado vehicle to transport voters in Arima. He said this was an issue of objection raised by the ILP.
