Fabien: I will run in 2015 election
Electors went to the polls in St Joseph today to elect a new MP, voting for the second time in two weeks, independent candidate Errol Fabien was vowing to return to the polls again in 2015 general election.
Fabien made the comment after being the first person to vote at St Joseph Government Primary School.
Expressing quiet confidence, he said his two-week campaign peaked at the correct time.
Saying his campaign was quiet, Fabien said the constituents of St Joseph were disturbed by the noisy campaign of the other candidates and whatever the result, he would continue to talk and listen to the people of St Joseph.
“We don’t deserve crumbs, we must get the whole loaf,” he told the T&T Guardian after voting yesterday.
Fabien said he will also contest the 2015 general election.
“This is the new phase of my life, my new definition of myself and I am in it 1,000 per cent.”
He said the process at the polling station was “super smooth” and praised the conduct of the election by the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC).
Fabien said he was very cautious about having the media cover his house-to-house campaign.
“If the television cameras were there, it would have been a show. This is not a show, this is as serious as it could get,” he explained.
He said the people of T&T and the Caribbean must begin to demand more of politicians.
Fabien said he learnt three things during the campaign: the love people have for him, their unawarenesss of who their MP was and that the standard of politics in the country had been lowered.
Voters, who were also out on October 21 for local government elections, trickled to polling stations across the constituency slowly from 6 am when stations were opened.
The slow pace continued throughout the entire morning and early afternoon.
