No election in 2014, PM tells supporters

Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar went into "PNM territory" on Monday night to meet constituents and swear-in 25 party groups as she prepares for the general election in 2015. She told her audience no election is coming soon because the People's Partnership plans on serving its full five-year term.

The meeting was held at
the Diego Martin North Secondary School, where the PM announced several development plans for the region. These include a new vocational college for Diego Martin, a new health centre for Carenage and a national conservation for the country. 
The national conversation will start in the next two weeks, she said, adding that the format would be one-to-one and stakeholder meetings in which the electorate can have an input into policy-making.

“You will do the talking, I will do the listening. We will record your comments and suggestions and use them to guide the policies that we will implement,” she said. The dates and time for the of the town hall-style meetings would be advertised in the media she said as she urged everyone to participate.

She also slammed the PNM. "Every time the PNM has not been in government they have engaged in activity to try to destabilise the country,” she said. “They believe they have a divine right to rule, no one else.” 
She said the People's Partnership inherited "an economic mess" in 2010 with a budget deficit of a quarter of a trillion dollars, a shrinking economy and a treasury in debt to contractors. Today, the economy under the government she leads is robust and growing with foreign investors have exceeding $2.1 billion.
