Letter: PM Kamla sets stage for 2015 re-election

Thank you for the privileged opportunity to express my prophetic opinion, vision and commendation for the Honourable Kamla Persad-Bissessar as she boldly sets the political stage for a second term in office in 2015, to continue as the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago.

Certainly, in mid-stream of government, unimaginable resilience and willpower, unparelleled courage and stamina, political stability, consistent perseverance, surveillance and determination.

Worthy of admiration is her potential capacity to manage her family life, government and politics, keeping the People’s Partnership explicitly together, with just a single insignificant declension. 

She ranks equally among female prime ministers of the world, past and present, such as Magaret Thatcher (The Iron Lady of Great Britain), Indira Gandhi (India), Portia Simpson-Miller (Jamaica) and Julia Gillard (Australia).

Mrs Persad-Bissessar is daily laying the solid foundation for re-election in 2015 with plans, policies, initiatives and programmes such as Cepep, URP, Gate, Social assistance and welfare, the Children’s Fund and increased remuneration across the board, just to mention a few. Here lies the broad spectrum of voters whom she is targeting.

Her renowned performance as Prime Minister has already found recognition, appraisal and favour locally, regionally and internationally.She commands total support from her Cabinet ministers, especially the indefatigable Jack Warner, Dr Tim Gopeesingh, Dr Suruj Rambachan, Dr Roodal Moonilal, Winston Dookeran and Kevin Ramnarine (key ministers).

With respect to her current opposition forces, within and without, and which are unimportant and transient, she seems immovable, unperturbed, unimpressed and undisturbed. This is charismatic, incredible, dynamic, exceptional leadership. Silently, probably she is musing as the late Dr Eric Williams once said: “Let the jackass bray.”

I firmly believe that her detractors will disintegrate over time or they shall subsequently pose no significant threat to her victory at the next general election. 

I have envisaged her People’s Partnership Government capturing the Tobago House of Assembly election in 2013 and the next general election in 2015. 

This is only possible if she continues to proclaim her regular but important mantra: “I put God first, and we walk behind!”
