Rowley- UNC and PNM not the same

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,”
