PNM: Freedom of expression, assembly

THE ruling People's National Movement (PNM) in a release yesterday "reiterate its commitment to the democratic principles enshrined in Trinidad and Tobago's Constitution, which emphatically provide for freedom of expression and freedom of assembly".

The release stressed that it was the PNM "which insisted on these provisions being contained in this country's 1962 Independence Constitution and strengthened in the 1976 Republican Constitution.

"These principles have been upheld by every PNM administration since 1956 and were preserved even after 1971 when after winning every seat in a general election, the PNM sought to govern with full respect for these democratic ideals.

"The PNM will never support or be party to any action which seeks to deny any citizen of Trinidad and Tobago these fundamental rights and freedoms. This includes the recognition of having a judiciary and a police service free from political interference as has been the practice of successive PNM administrations throughout several terms in office."       :D
