Prime Minister to reveal evidence of ILP, PNM collusion tomorrow
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar yesterday promised to reveal evidence of collusion between the People’s National Movement and Independent Liberal Party’s interim leader Jack Warner. Speaking to reporters at the Piarco International Airport on her return from Panama, Persad-Bissessar said she would make the revelation on the campaign platform tomorrow night. Persad-Bissessar also challenged Warner’s statement that phones were being tapped under her administration.
“Mr Warner always makes some sort of fanciful claims, I really don't know what credibility he has,” she said. “There are those who believe that he was the one doing the tapping,” she said. She said he should bring the evidence forward if he had it. “It is very easy to make wild allegations, unsubstantiated allegations and when asked to substantiate those allegations people just fall off the cliff,” she said.
“I have no evidence that any wiretapping is taking place by any Government agency,” she said. The Panamanian trip, she said, spelled good news for local jet fuel as talks would continue regarding supply for Copa Airlines and preferential export rates for over 200 items back and forth. Meanwhile, Persad-Bissessar dismissed the findings of the Nacta Polls that puts the PNM in front in the October 21 local government elections. She said the People’s Partnership still has a good chance of taking victory.
The latest Nacta polls showed that the PNM was leading the election race. But Persad-Bissessar said she has been told otherwise as the PP’s campaign was going very well. “The campaign is concentrating on a ground war rather than an airwave war.”
