Prime Minister congratulates Ramadhar
Soon after the results of yesterday’s COP internal elections were confirmed, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar sent a congratulatory message to re-elected political leader Parkash Ramadhar.
Persad-Bissessar who praised all three candidates for their participation and work in strengthening their party's institutions, said: "Today, the COP's peaceful democratic exercise has consolidated the belief of all partners of the People's Partnership and indeed all citizens who looked on with interest, in standing together and providing a strong, compassionate leadership that listens.
"As partners standing together in Government, I look forward to our continued focus on making our country a great and proud one with our work and commitment to prosperity for all citizens." The prime minister said she was confident the COP “will now put aside any differences that may have come about during the campaign, so that we can all continue working towards a successful completion of our first term as the People's Partnership, and a strong campaign for re-election in 2015”.
