Time for PP to end missteps
Both Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar and Rodney Charles are today facing a monumental political challenge; how to face the uphill task of seeking the re-election bid by the People’s Partnership coalition government in the 2015 general election. That’s the net effect of the damning loss of two government ministers within the space of the last seven days, both brought on by their own misdeeds, in separate but almost similar circumstances from the KPB Cabinet: Glenn Ramadharsingh and Chandresh Sharma.
At least that’s the perception being generated by the parties opposed to the PP regime, which has been characterised by a series of missteps and other unfortunate occasions occasioned by the actions of the PP functionaries themselves, be they ministers or what have you. Especially the official opposition People’s National Movement.
In case you may have missed it because of the more saucy news fare thrown out by the Ramdharsingh/Sharma combination, Charles is being brought back home from his cushy job as our country’s ambassador to the United Nations, to manage the campaign of the PP in next year’s polls, and on his shoulders rests the unenviable task of ensuring the coalition’s return to office.
