Broken Peoples Partnership Promises?|Orville London


TOBAGO House of Assembly (THA) Chief Secretary and People’s National Movement (PNM) deputy political leader (Tobago Affairs), Orville London has accused the People’s Partnership administration of making promises they clearly knew they couldn’t keep.

“What Finance Minister Winston Dookeran is saying now, he could have said ten months ago, he could have said one month before the General Election. He could have said that when they were doing their Manifesto,” said London.

Well I don't know what promises made that have not been kept considering that the new government's term in office has just begun. Mr. London's PNM made a lot of promises that they did not keep but this too is not new to the politics of Trinidad and Tobago. To date I have not heard the government announce anything saying that they are not able to keep any of the promises made during the election campaign.

As a matter of fact all parties campaigning for government make promises without knowing the exact state of the tresuary (unless they are in the position of sitting government) - that is just the way the political game is played. I don't know that this present administration has promised wage increases to the CEPEP workers and as a matter of fact I believe that it was ex PM Mr. Manning who made that promise. Mr. London has to be more specific and state the promises made that cannot and will not be kept by this administration.

The political games have officially begun with Parliament set for opening on Friday - interesting times are ahead - it should be a very interesting period in our history.
