T&T Newsday Reports.
And Couva West had yet another one of their games postponed, as they were scheduled to face Tabaquite yesterday.
The teams were scheduled to kick-off at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva, but upon their arrival, they were greeted with an ongoing ‘‘family day’’.
Team officials opted to head to Gilbert Park to attempt the match but there was no official lines to border the football field.
They tried another grounds in the area, only to be turned away by practicing clubs. This is the third game that Couva have been forced to reschedule.
It's inherently about the composition and character of the replacing government via the ballot. Just as there was an enhancement of the nation's democracy and political maturity upon the NAR taking office and in subsequent years when Mr. Panday became PM, the ascendancy of the PP and the actualisation of coalition politics in determining governmental composition are reflective not only of political expediency, but also of a maturing democratic body politic post-1962.
Expound on this for my enlightenment please. Cause...I interpreting it to mean that one party replacing another in government is a good thing..regardless of the consequences. By the very nature of an election...a party can be ejected and another installed. Nothing new there. How could it be a distinct matter from where it proves to be a good thing for the country or not?
As long as people vex enough tuh reject "same" in favor "other" dat is ah good thing. Never mind that "other" might be wuss dan "same."
Success of the PP government at the polls was a good thing for democracy and political maturity in Trinidad & Tobago. Point blank! This is a distinct matter from whether it ultimately was (or proves to be) a good thing for the economy, international prestige, financial markets, domestic policy and the national welfare, state security, regional harmony, public confidence, and so on.
BTW Bale to Madrid for around 100mil Euros.
He worth less than half that imo
The Independent Liberal Party (ILP) will officially launch its campaign for the local government elections next Friday.
ILP interim leader Jack Warner returned to the Parliament yesterday and was sworn in, having won the Chaguanas West by-election on Monday as the ILP candidate.
Questioned by the media on what it was like to be back, Warner said he felt at home after a three-month hiatus where he engaged in a “bruising campaign” with Government machinery against him yet he emerged successful with a landslide victory in the United National Congress (UNC) heartland.
Warner said it was unprecedented that he won all 51 polling stations in the by-election. The launch of the ILP’s local government election campaign, he said, will take place on Friday next to the Tunapuna market.
He said the ILP will definitely be vying for the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation and the Chaguanas Borough Corporation as these two corporations service the needs of his constituency and he cannot deliver to the people without their assistance.
Warner said the Sangre Grande Corporation will also be contested by the ILP, pointing out that councillors from that corporation have joined ranks with the ILP.
A strategic committee, he said, will look at what other corporations the ILP will contest.
Warner said there were some persons who were still “bitter and vindictive” in the aftermath of the Chaguanas West by-election but he will deal with them at a convenient time and expose them to the public.
The spotlight was on Warner at yesterday’s parliamentary opening and he was greeted by a number of former colleagues as well as members from the Opposition and Independent benches.
“I was greeted only by Gypsy, Fuad Khan and Volney...as expected all the others were just merely sham and I didn’t take them seriously, some of them couldn’t even open their eye,” said Warner.
He said when Attorney General Anand Ramlogan greeted him, he told the AG that he was disappointed in him.
Warner said he could not be bothered by COP leader Prakash Ramadhar’s greeting as Ramadhar had said he sent a congratulatory message and Warner responded, “Yes, yeah right.”
Warner blanked the cocktail reception which followed the parliamentary opening. He opted for a private drink with his friends at the Hyatt Regency hotel.
“Mr Khan is my friend, he’s always been and will always be through good time and bad times and so too is Gypsy and so too is Volney, that’s why we are going for our own private drink at the Hyatt and not mixing with them upstairs because I can’t “chook” with people who don’t like me and otherwise,” he said.
On President Anthony Carmona’s speech, Warner said it was the best he has ever heard and it should be published and distributed to the people and everyone should have a copy of it in their homes.
Ah see some mod change mih poll (thanks)
The sad thing about this particular election is that the PNM fella is probably the least tainted and will lose he deposit .
If Jack win this he aint going to stop there, he will make a serious run for the Hyatt House.
If he lose, he must have some sort of strategy for dat, maybe he will release files and bring down the PP forcing an early general elections, then is more baccahnal
PRAYERS VS PARTY
UNC brings in Bollywood’s Kumar Sanu while Jack opts for Ramayan yagna for by-election finale

There will be partying and prayers in Felicity tomorrow with the United National Congress (UNC) bringing in Indian playback singer Kumar Sanu to serenade voters whilst the Independent Liberal Party (ILP) will hold a Ramayan Yagna.
There is a total of 27,051 voters in the Chaguanas West by-election, 6,000 of whom are from Felicity.
Both parties have stepped up campaigning in the area for the past week in a bid to secure to victory in the election.
A poll commissioned by the Express and done by Solution by Simulation led by pollster Nigel Henry has put ILP interim leader Jack Warner in front.
Losing the constituency, regarded as a “UNC safe seat”, will be a major blow for the UNC Government if Warner creates history and wins it as an independent candidate.
Tomorrow, at the Pierre Road recreation grounds in Charlieville, the UNC will hold a mass public meeting at 3 p.m. with Sanu as its star performer.
ILP interim political leader Warner will host a Ramayan Yagna at the Shri Kristen Mandir in Lyle Lane Street, Felicity, from 7 p.m. The Express was told that Sanu’s usual performance fee was approximately US$25,000 plus first class travel and hotel accommodation.
Sanu arrived yesterday evening and will depart on Sunday.
A release from the UNC’s Chaguanas West campaign office stated that in addition to Sanu, a number of top local artistes will perform.
A battery of speakers will also be on stage with the feature address by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar. Voters will also hear from UNC candidate Khadijah Ameen.
Sanu is no stranger to Trinidad as he performed at several concerts here over the years.
However, this is the first time that he will be gracing this country’s shores to mount a political platform and belt out his hits.
The award-winning singer is billed to perform for one hour after the speeches and will be accompanied by his leading musician Somen Sankar with the support of a local band.
Housing Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal who arranged Sanu’s visit said yesterday that a massive turnout is anticipated.
“We were very pleased that despite a very hectic schedule of recording and personal engagements, Kumar Sanu was able to fit us in,” he stated.
“We are expecting a massive crowd on Saturday to what will be a fitting closing event to our very successful campaign in which we expect to have the UNC retain the seat for Chaguanas West. Kumar Sanu’s appearance will be the crescendo to a fabulous event,” added Moonilal.
Earlier this year Sanu was in Trinidad and performed at the Chutney Brass Festival at Guaracara Park, Pointe-a-Pierre.
Promoter Randy Glasgow told the Express yesterday by phone that Sanu contacted him and told him he will be coming to Trinidad.
Questioned on Sanu’s fees, Glasgow said that not all performers, no matter how big they are, charge a fee.
“If somebody is your friend regardless of how big they are, it is not always about money,” he said, adding that once good treatment is given artistes tend to come with no cost. Asked about Sanu’s decision to perform for the first time on a political platform in this country, Glasgow said, “In the United States he would support Senators who were going up for election with East Indian roots, this is not something new to him.”
Chief executive officer of Caribbean Lifestyle Communications Ltd, Tony Maharaj, who recently flew in Indian superstars Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik to perform in Trinidad said political parties were free to bring in artistes to boost their campaigns.
“Political parties are free to campaign in any way and if they think that is going to enhance their campaign, that is something that is entirely their decision,” he said.
“My personal view, I don’t think an artiste coming to perform will help a voter in any way to make a decision as to which way he or she would vote,” he added.
Sanu: Moonilal a good man

Indian superstar Kumar Sanu said last night that people should vote for the United National Congress (UNC) because its deputy leader Dr Roodal Moonilal is a “good man”.
Sanu arrived at Piarco International Airport around 7 p.m and spoke to the Express briefly just before leaving for his hotel.
“I know Dr Moonilal very well and I came for him and it’s just a friendly trip and I’m performing first time for any political party,” he said.
Sanu explained this is his first performance on a political stage outside of India.
Questioned on what drove him to do this, Sanu responded, “It’s a good thing because he’s a good man and I think people should vote him (Moonilal)”.
Told that Moonilal is not contesting the Chaguanas West by-election, Sanu said, “I mean his party should get the vote, that is the main thing.”
Sanu has been to this country on several occasions to perform.
