Political backing up and backing down...
The backing up of political directions—new and old—undertaken in various quarters has been balanced at least in one sector by certain backing down. This, as the Government aims for a new profile and resuming Parliament by next Friday, depending on the return of ministers from overseas, PP officials said.
Once on, ILP leader Jack Warner will occupy Parliament’s back bench, next to MP Herbert Volney behind the Opposition PNM. Former works minister Warner is expected to sit behind another former works minister—PNM’s Colm Imbert, ILP officials said.
Warner, accused of fuelling discontent in PP-held areas, launched his local government campaign last week in Tunapuna, a slap in the political face of his defeated Chaguanas West opponent Khadijah Ameen who heads the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation and clearly a signal of his intent there in local government polls. It remains to be seen whether his usually large crowd will follow to his Sangre Grande meeting tomorrow, targeting another area.
