Dissolve Parliament, call elections now
The political climate in T&T at the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010 was volatile due to the disdain felt by the citizenry as a result of the way the then government was running our country. Namely the issue of Calder Hart was on the tongue of everyone and the alleged corruption and nepotism that was taking place. To satisfy the demands of the masses our then prime minister, Patrick Manning, announced an election almost halfway through his term in office. Democracy was embraced and the people were made to adjudicate on whether or not he and his government should continue to lead us. On May 24 the people chose our first female PM, Kamla Persad-Bissessar to improve the landscape of our country to the world. The members of our government swore to uphold the constitution; they claimed to be honest, transparent and fair as they put country before party and integrity before greed. Thus far some have been fired from government posts and lately the Section 34 fiasco smells of deception and corruption.
