Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says citizens need to ensure that the characteristics of peace, forgiveness and unity are instilled in our daily lives and she's calling for more care towards the less fortunate.

Legal fees paid during the past PP administration’s tenure did not have to be brought to Cabinet for approval since fees from ministries and State enterprises don’t have to be approved there.

As the Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar launched her local government election campaign, she promised to create 50,000 jobs if she is re-elected Prime Minister. Reiterating her warning that the Rowley-led Peoples National Movement (PNM) government wants to steal the elections, Persad-Bissessar said the United National Congress (UNC) will not allow it.
pposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says the UNC only agreed to support the Civil Asset Recovery and Management and Unexplained Wealth Bill, 2019, after it ensured the fundamental rights of citizens were not eroded and that the property of innocent citizens would not be in jeopardy.
The bill was passed unanimously Monday night after the Government and Opposition agreed to several changes to the initial bill proposed by Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi during an almost 12-hourlong session.
Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar is carded to speak at an International Women’s Day event organized by the American Chamber of Commerce for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean (AMCHAM BEC).

In her response to the prime minister's media event today, Persad-Bissessar said it appears that the prime minister has reached a state of meltdown and is incapable of leading the country.
Persad-Bissessar issued the following statement on Thursday.
Government “fell flat” on its face on its flagship Sandals project after the administration withheld information from the public and dismissed concerns on it, says Opposition Leader Kamla Persad- Bissessar.
“The position presented during (yesterday’s) press conference that Sandals withdrew based on negative publicity is bordering on absurd. It’s yet another attempt by Government to deflect attention from their incompetence, “Persad-Bissessar added in a statement yesterday.
Lack of plans and bad plans were among the responses from various quarters to the first part of Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley's address to the nation on Sunday night.
Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar criticised Rowley's televised address as lacking plans, while officials of the T&T Chamber were awaiting last night's second part of the address to hear Government's plans.
The Oilfields Workers' Trade Union (OWTU) said the plans so far have put T&T into a deeper hole, rather than lifting it from one.
