PRAYER TO ST JOSEPH
As was the case in the Chaguanas West by-election in which the electorate was given the opportunity to vote for person over party, so too do the voters in St Joseph have a chance to send a strong message that party allegiance should not be taken for granted. In this marginal seat, swing voters will play a vital role in determining the outcome of the election and it is important that all who go to the polls get it right for what is in the best interest of the country.
As the final election for this year draws near, it is clear that the Government intends to end its losing record by doing literally all within, and some might add outside, its power to ensure victory.
With 17 months left before the general election is constitutionally due, this regime ought to recognise that there is a fundamental difference between political propaganda meant to fool the people and pulling up political socks to regain public trust and confidence. In the same way the former leader of the COP admitted that his party was in a weaker position today than in 2007 when it first faced the electorate, the PM ought to accept that the PP has lost much of its political attractiveness since it was elected into office a little over three years ago.
