To all those who don't wish to vote red or yel­low - Peo­ple's Na­tion­al Move­ment or Unit­ed Na­tion­al Con­gress - the Port-of-Spain Peo­ple's Move­ment (PPM) says come to the cen­tre.

That was the call from PPM chair­man Louis Lee Sing the launch of the par­ty's can­di­dates for Port-of-Spain for the De­cem­ber 2 Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment elec­tions.

Lee Sing launches the PPM

Former Port of Spain Mayor, Louis Lee Sing, has promised to rid the capital city of thousands of unsanitary latrine pits.

He made the pledge as he unveiled the Port of Spain People's Movement, a new political incarnation that's taking aim at PNM heartland: the Port of Spain City Corporation.

“For 60 plus years there is a political organisation that has presided over 3,000 latrine pits within this capital city,” Lee Sing said. “Mayors came and left and they did nothing about it. We must move those latrine pits!”

UNC: “We are not against the OWTU…”

The United National Congress has made it clear that the party did not file any lawsuit seeking an injunction to block the sale of the Pointe-a-Pierre Refinery.

The political party has issued an official statement, in which it explains that concerned citizens are the ones who’ve filed the constitutional claim.

The lawsuit has been filed against the Chairman of the Joint Select Committee on Energy Affairs—Finance Minister Colm Imbert—over his failure to convene a meeting for close to two years.

Imbert: ‘I’m like the Hulk’

“I’m like the Hulk.”

That was Fi­nance Min­is­ter Colm Im­bert’s grin­ning con­fes­sion yes­ter­day as he re­spond­ed to UNC MP Fazal Karim’s queries dur­ing yes­ter­day’s Stand­ing Fi­nance Com­mit­tee (SFC) scruti­ny of 2020 Bud­get items for the To­ba­go House of As­sem­bly (THA).
