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”.
