The voting yesterday indicated that manning is hated and people wanted he gorn.  peopl, includign a PNMite like me felt that enough was enough and it was high time he rode out, as tings could NOT get any worse.

people have a right to feel that when things real bad they could get better.  Kamal represents hope, if she is successful is left to be seen, but HOPE is alive....look at the sheer numbers voting against teh PNM!

poor leadership, poor management and piss poor politics led the PNm to where they are now.

manning needs to ride out!

Congratulations Trinidad and Tobago.

The people wanted change and the people have spoken. And given the climate surrounding this entire elections, I'm also happy that it seems to have came off smoothly and without incident.

This was always a 'rock and a hard place' election. On the one hand you have a government failing its citizens in basic human necessities with an arrogant, borderline dictatorial leader consumed by power and now mired in serious implications of corruptions. The decision to call an early election itself was a tacit admission of failure and ineptitude.

On the other hand you have a hastily put together alliance that gives no confidence of staying together and provides no tangible solutions to the problems that face the society. Worst yet they bring more than their fair share of characters of questionable moral standing. The corruption that was significant of the party's previous tenure in government should also be fresh in memory.

But at the end of the day, a vote for the incumbent would have been a vote for the continued regression of this government and an endorsement for a leader that has simply lost the plot. And Trinidad and Tobago has decided not to have that.

Coming out of this election, as an optimist these are my hopes for the country:

- The crime situation is tackled head on by the new government. I seriously would like to see Jack take on the role of national security. He might be ah stinkin ole tief, but the f**ker is the hardest working person in government and he gets shit done!

- Government alliances with criminal elements managed through the URP and CEPEP are broken.

- The new government addresses the wanton spending on non-necessities by the prior administration and starts addressing the basic necessities like health care.

- The PNM uses this loss to re-organize itself, get its act together, get some fresh blood and become a stronger party that will be a real option for good governance in the next election.

- Term limits

- Societal integration.

These are just some things I hope for, like i said as an optimist. Lewwe see wha number play.

To hell in a handbasket we go.

NAH MAN MANNING D CAUSE OF ALL ILLS HAVE GONEEEEEEEEEEEEE

stop it, Manning called the elections like a mad man, but in fairness his government was collapsing.

he bought this shit upon the PNM,  It is his fault, he allowwed our treasury to be raped by Hart etc.

It IS  his FAULT

Where I say it eh he fault but d problems in this country will not all dissapear wit Patrick. D votin yday indicated dat get rid ah Manning and all will b swell.

so dey shoulda print de ballot to say "Get rid of all de problems" instead of de candidate name.

Damn good question. The answer is because his walk in the wilderness is not permanent. I'm not suggesting he'll hold elective office again, but last night's overtures to him already point to paving the way for reconciliation. It's one thing to alienate a primary actor when there is tension within opposition ranks. Upon attaining office, the equation changes. Watch for a resurrection in Mikela's interest.

The one good thing that can be said is that the media and th epublic starting from a position of distrust and vigilance. Not just because of the current characters but the past history of the UNC with Carlos and Ish.

you woul dhope that Jack and company will not get as long a leash as Calder Hart (and by extension Manning). The only thing they can't stop is the "legal" corruption, the open nepotism and self serving award of non-tender business to friends and family. Jack master that with FIFA and the TTFF.

I personally don't have a problem with bringing Mikela in via the Senate or in some similar capacity.  Actually, I think she should have been allowed to fight her seat.....Panday on the other hand is a no, no......Kamla better doh play up nah.....let Panday stay where he is.....

Panday  replid: " I don't have a problem with UNC in power but i have a problem with Jack"

Oh please.... ::) ::) 

When Jack was funding the UNC campaign in 2007, bailing out Oma and funding he trip to Germany for the World Cup in '06 he didn't have a problem then.  Steups!!....is because of Panday we are saddled with Jack in Gov't.  Let Pandy throw he frame!!!.....why they still interviewing him is beyond me....

Damn good question. The answer is because his walk in the wilderness is not permanent. I'm not suggesting he'll hold elective office again, but last night's overtures to him already point to paving the way for reconciliation. It's one thing to alienate a primary actor when there is tension within opposition ranks. Upon attaining office, the equation changes. Watch for a resurrection in Mikela's interest.


...dont think most people will have a problem if Mickela Panday was to return as a senator or in some form of future local government..I dont like Basdeo Panday but I cannot hold his children or even his future grandchildren at hostage for his corrupt ways ..

whatt happened to Imix bway???

  I dunno nah Olokun..all the PNMites mash up the site since election results
and to add the traffic to see updates from the massacre in Jamaica

Congratulations Trinidad and Tobago.

The people wanted change and the people have spoken. And given the climate surrounding this entire elections, I'm also happy that it seems to have came off smoothly and without incident.

This was always a 'rock and a hard place' election. On the one hand you have a government failing its citizens in basic human necessities with an arrogant, borderline dictatorial leader consumed by power and now mired in serious implications of corruptions. The decision to call an early election itself was a tacit admission of failure and ineptitude.

On the other hand you have...
..."an arrogant, borderline dictatorial leader consumed by power and now mired in serious implications of corruptions."

Oh wait... that kinda redundant.

Ah go take ah run off - ah voting for integrity ethical practice moral fortitude - upright citizens with proven competences- a party that reflects the plurals tic multi ethnic representation ; representatives who can effect change in social medical political and economic opportunities for all peoples.
A party who believes in that'd every creed and race have an equal place in our society; a party that would stamp out gang warfare and be hard on criminals- yes and before ah vote ah want to hear of concrete plans  that candidates have  for potential portfolios which they may qualify for. Ah voting for string decisive well informed leadership. One who could discern and one who could select ministers who are competent to run a ministry.
Yes ah voting for these principles - ah looking for a party with principles not propaganda and baseless rhetoric- I heard too much of that in the last victory speech. Baseless promises about unity that never came to fruition. Don't want to experience that disappointment in an election again.

A new party was formed out of the belly of the PMN yesterday... I think it was the PDA.
