Imbert: PM’s speech, a campaign launch

It’s official—the Prime Minister’s televised presentations on Sunday and Monday have kickstarted the ruling PNM’s political campaign for the three elections ahead, starting with Local Government polls expected by year end.

Finance Minister Colm Imbert confirmed this on CNC3’s Morning Brew while referring to Prime Minister Keith Rowley’s addresses.

He emphasised it was not a campaign launch in the sense of a “rally” but, “the fact is, this is an election year”.

Imbert defends PM's presentation

Finance Minister Colm Imbert says prime minister Dr Keith Rowley had a right to give background information on the economy during his two-part address to the nation earlier this week.

The prime minister was criticised for spending too much time talking about previous years as opposed to the government's plans for the country going forward.

Speaking on the Morning Brew, Minister Imbert says the last three years have been difficult.

However, he was asked whether the prime minister's address was the launch of the PNM's election campaign.
