Trinidad: Kamla wants foreign observers for T&T elections

Unit­ed Na­tion­al Con­gress leader Kam­la Per­sad-Bisses­sar has called for in­ter­na­tion­al ob­servers to be brought in­to Trinidad and To­ba­go for this coun­try’s 2020 gen­er­al elec­tions.

She made the call at the UNC’s Mon­day Night Fo­rum at the Union Clax­ton Bay Sec­ondary school. on Mon­day as she pre­sent­ed Taharq Obi­ka, an econ­o­mist and banker who has had stints in the Sen­ate and Michelle Ben­jamin as the par­ty’s can­di­dates for Point Fortin and Moru­ga/Table­land re­spec­tive­ly.

Say­ing she want­ed all coun­cil­lors to work hard so they could end up in the Red House, Per­sad-Bisses­sar said she wants free and fair elec­tions in T&T when the date is fi­nal­ly called.

Not­ing the po­si­tion of Cari­com in light of the cur­rent Guyana elec­tion im­passe and vi­o­lence which has erupt­ed there, Per­sad-Bisses­sar said she hoped the Guyanese un­rest could be set­tled soon.

She claimed Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley had wrecked the T&T econ­o­my, not­ing the coun­try had $122 bil­lion in pub­lic sec­tor debts. She al­so said it was not true that the Op­po­si­tion had not sup­port­ed the Gov­ern­ment in pass­ing cru­cial leg­is­la­tion to curb crime.
