Despite the claim that the People's Partnership received the popular vote, statistics from Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) state it was the winning party the People's National Movement which received that prize.
During her concession speech on election night former prime minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar said the People's Partnership, which comprises the United National Congress (UNC), Congress of the People (COP), Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP) and the National Joint Action Committee (NJAC), won the popular vote.
But according to the EBC yesterday of the 1,099,279 eligible voters, 734,792 voted which represented 66.84 per cent of the eligible voters.
