The PNM’s principles are sound, PNM’s hands are clean and its doors are open.
That was Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s pitch to voters at yesterday’s PNM 49th convention and launch of the PNM’s Local Government election campaign, based on the theme “Getting the Job Done.”
Rowley’s hour-long address to the faithful at the Queen’s Park Savannah focused on the positives of his government’s term culminated the all-day event designed to rally PNM troops for the December 2, Local Government poll.
In Couva, Opposition leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar also rallied UNC supporters with a similarly long address at her UNC party’s campaign launch.
PNM’s 139 local government candidates as well as UNC’s and other parties’ participants in the election will file nomination papers today at Election and Boundaries Commission offices throughout Trinidad.
Referring to the election, Rowley said, “Local Government elections are once again upon us resting easy on our PNM minds….this is an event that our non-believer political opponents were so sure would never come, that they called press conferences to announce their own vision that local government elections will not be called. That’s just a teeny weeny little example of their own lack of trust in our nation and its national business,”
