Guardian story contradictory

Saturday's Pre-Budget rally - clearly a party matter since the PM was boldly wearing her UNC colours in this Guardian photo, which also shows Anil Roberts in his COP shirt
It seems that the Guardian newspaper either believes the in Trinidad & Tobago the governing party and the government are the same or the people writing the headlines don't read the stories.

The headline for a story on the weekend People's Partnership rally states:
Pre-Budget Rally Could cost PP govt $260,000 (emphasis mine) but the lead line in the story says: The broadcast of the People’s Partnership pre-budget rally on Saturday at Chaguanas could cost the party at least $260,000 (emphasis mine.)

Which is it? 

Surely the Guardian, as a responsible national newspaper that has always credited itself as being the 'Guardian of Democracy', cannot believe that party and government are the same. I urge the editors to pay attention lest people get the impression that the paper is deliberately trying to confuse, mislead or misinform its readers.
