Solid support for UNC in CWC: Kamla

PM Kamla during  a walkabout Wednesday
Kamla Persad-Bissessar told reporters Wednesday there is solid support for the United National Congress (UNC) in the Chaguanas West by-election.

She made the comment to reporters covering her walkabout in Munroe Road, Cunupia.

“I feel confident, but as I said yesterday we must continue to mobilise the troops, they must not become complacent and say it is a safe seat, that’s why we are on the ground. I will be on the ground every day meeting with the constituents to ensure we mobilise all troops and all forces for election day,” she added.

She also said she is not bothered by rumours that some people's Partnership (PP) MPs are planning to join Jack Warner's new Independent Liberal Party (ILP).

She said Trinidad and Tobago is a free and democratic country and people have the right to make choices. 

"I have no concern about that, we are in a free country, it’s a democracy and people are free to select whom they want to support. Most of our MPs are with us, I can’t see anyone crossing but if they do, all that is par for the course," she said.

The Prime Minister also responded to a charge that a private contracting firm is financing her campaign. Warner has stated that Super Industrial Services (SIS) is the UNC’s campaign financier. 

She denied that. "Perhaps he finance Mr Warner, he’s not financing me."
