T&T no better off under People’s Partnership
As T&T gets set to celebrate its 50th anniversary of independence, poor governance continues to plague the country. This is the strong view of political commentator Michael Harris who said T&T was no better off under the People’s Partnership than it was under previous administrations.
Harris made the comment at the public forum hosted by the Movement of Social Justice (MSJ) in Port-of-Spain yesterday on governance and the economy. “It is the most critical issue that the country faces because we continue to spiral downwards as a country. We are no better off than when we were under any former regime. We are at the bottom of the barrel and cannot go any lower now,” Harris said.
Also speaking at the forum was former deputy political leader of the Congress of the People Robert Mayers who chastised the government for its excessive spending. Mayers said at the end of the fiscal year, T&T was likely to record a $9 billion deficit. Meanwhile, political leader of the MSJ David Abdulah said the party would continue the struggle for citizens to be treated fairly.
