Nanton reports as Tobago decides
With two weeks to go, the campaign for the Tobago House of Assembly election is heating up. This will be the most hotly contested THA election ever, with both major parties, the TOP and the PNM, seeing it as a referendum on the performance of the current PNM administration in Tobago and a test of the People’s Partnership Government.
As Tobago decides, CNC3’s deputy head of news Sampson Nanton will be in Tobago for the next two weeks. Starting tomorrow (Monday), he will be reporting for CNC3 and its sister paper, the T&T Guardian. Nanton, who knows Tobago well after living and working there, will be visiting the island’s communities to get behind the campaign slogans and the platform politics.
He’ll be talking to Tobagonians about the real issues behind the headlines. How do they really feel about this election? What are the issues that confront them every day? Have the politicians kept their promises? Have the people of Tobago been impressed by the performance or the propaganda?
Sampson Nanton’s stories will be carried on CNC3’s Early Morning Show, the news at noon and CNC3’s evening news at 7 pm. His series of reports, Tobago Decides, will also appear in the T&T Guardian as part of this special Guardian Media Ltd campaign coverage. Follow Sampson Nanton on Twitter at @samnanton to find out what to look out for in his reports on CNC3 and in the T&T Guardian.
From this Thursday, Nanton will be joined by a team from the T&T Guardian as GML steps up its multimedia coverage. Senior reporter Yvonne Baboolal and photographer Marcus Gonzales will also be based in Tobago until the election, reporting on the campaign meetings—and the real talk on the ground. The people and the politics are the focus of this special Guardian Media Ltd campaign—Tobago Decides.
