Polls don’t paint accurate picture—Lalla
Independent Liberal Party candidate in the St Joseph by-election, Om Lalla said yesterday that the outcome of the polls conducted prior to an election is not necessarily an accurate picture of the voting pattern of the electorate. “Any area whether traditional PNM or UNC, we (ILP) has gotten fabulous support from the people. I don’t think any poll could properly represent this constituency because it is too diverse of a constituency to have a poll, you can’t compare the Bangladesh to the Valsayn, to the Mt Hope. It’s too diverse in the different pockets.”
Accompanied by interim political leader Jack Warner, Lalla’s motorcade began in Aranguez at his campaign office and moved into North Valsayn yesterday, then to Bamboo Number One.
At North Valsayn, not many people came out of their homes to show support but Lalla was not daunted. Police officers were present to control the traffic as the motorcade moved out of North Valsayn. At East Grove Development, Valsayn, the ILP and the People’s National Movement clashed on the compound but ILP left soon after.
