PNM, ILP present LGE candidates Sunday; PP does it Monday

The opposition People's National Movement (PNM) led by Keith Rowley will present its Local Government candidates at a rally at Woodford Square on Sunday.

And Jack Warner's Independent Liberal Party (ILP) will make its presentation at Endeavour Lands, Opposite Medford Gas Station, Chaguanas also on Sunday.

The two parties are independently challenging the People's Partnership, which has worked out its sharing arrangement and will present its full lineup for the election on Monday at Harris Promenade, San Fernando. 

The three members of the partnership will share the seats among them. 

There are four members of the partnership - the United National Congress (UNC), The Congress of the People (COP), the National Joint Action Committee (NJAC) and the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP). TOP is not involved in this election, which is being held only in Trinidad.

Monday is nomination day for the election. For the first time, Aldermen will be elected on the basis of Proportional Representation. That means all parties would have to publish by Monday its list of Aldermen.

In the July 26, 2010 LGE the partnership won 11 of the 14 municipal resgions; the PNM won the other three. 

All parties are confident of victory but in a three-way race it's more difficult for any of them to be sure of the results.

The only group that is facing the electorate as a coalition is the People's Partnership (PP), which did the same in the 2010 general election and LGE.

In the October 21 election the primicipal member of the PP, the UNC, will contest eight of the 14 regional corpo­ra­tions on its own. The Congress of the People (COP) will fight five and the remaining one will be fought in conjunction with the National Joint Action Committee (NJAC).

UNC will contest:
  1. Sipa­ria 
  2. Penal/Debe
  3. Mayaro/Rio Claro
  4. Couva/Taba­quite
  5. Princes Town
  6. San­gre Grande
  7. Chaguanas
  8. San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation
COP will fight:
  1. Diego Martin
  2. Arima
  3. Tunapuna/Piarco
  4. Port of Spain
  5. San Fernando
NJAC will contest the Point Fortin Regional Corporation
