Trinidad: PDP for all of Tobago

Progressive Democratic Patriots (PDP) member Farley Augustine has defended his party’s choice of venue – Magdalena Grand Beach & Gold Resort – for the launch of its general election campaign on October 27.

He was responding to criticism, in some quarters, that the launch should be held in East Tobago, the PDP’s base.

The party, led by Watson Duke, was formed before the 2016 Tobago House of Assembly election.

It won two of the 12 electoral districts in the Assembly – Roxborough/Delaford (Duke) and Speyside/Parlatuvier/L’Anse Fourmi (Augustine).

The party also has a minority councillor in the Assembly, Dr Faith BYisrael, who had unsuccessfully contested the Goodwood/Belle Garden electoral district in the election.
