NO Government must be allowed to interfere with, change, alter or in anyway impact the way WE THE PEOPLE vote without comprehensive consultation with us, THE PEOPLE!
Below are the Constitution Amendments passed in Parliament on Monday 11th August 2014 by The Honourable Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar and her Cabinet.
Term Limits for office of The Prime Minister: This will create unnecessary complications within the governing party - incumbent Prime Minister remains as Political Leader of the party while someone else is installed as Prime Minister this is a recipe for PUPPET LEADERSHIP!!
Right to recall MPs: Section 49 of the constitution makes provision for all possible infractions which calls for the removal of a MP!! This proposed amendment makes no sense at all!! The process to trigger the recall is convoluted and it is highly unlikely that any MP will be recalled via this method!
Run off ballot:This is a blatant attempt to introduce Proportional Representation via the back door!!! What is wrong with 'The First Past the Post' system where a strong 3rd party can influence the final results?! This amendment seeks to entrench a two party system in Trinidad and Tobago!!
We are calling on the nine (9) Independent Senators to stop the Constitution (Amendment) Bill 2014 the future of Trinidad and Tobago are in your hands!
We the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago were not consulted!!
