THE Prime Minister has given the assurance that the local government election will be held later in the year contrary to reports that it would be postponed.
In fact, Dr Rowley told reporters that a date has already been set, but he did not divulge it. He said it “will be made available very soon.
“I keep hearing some of my colleagues in the Parliament and elsewhere talking about postponing and rigging the election. That is just hot air from the people who have nothing else to say. The population can rest assured the local government elections will be held in the appropriate time frame.”
He was speaking to the media outside the San Fernando East constituency office at Navet Road, San Fernando, where there was screening for candidates in three corporations — San Fernando, Siparia and Point Fortin.
