The People’s National Movement’s fourth leader, Dr Keith Rowley, now Prime Minister-elect, will be T&T’s second Tobago-born Prime Minister following yesterday’s 2015 general election victory.

Rowley follows Tobago-born late Prime Minister Arthur NR Robinson into history in this regard.

Mammoth cheers from supporters went up at PNM’s Balisier House headquarters at 11.40 pm last night when PNM chairman Franklin Khan announced the party’s election result victory, adding: “I now invite to address you, the new Prime Minister of T&T.”

    i wonder if there is a sanitized electoral list in Trinidad and if they brought people from all over to try and influence the election. i wonder if the Pm was in a certain constituency giving out money and hands out as well. Finally i wonder if they spoke of cow meat long gundy and collayed bakeries

  3. Remarkable Politician. She conceded she lost and put country first. The people has spoken she said. Respecting the rights of the people to choose.

  4. Gurrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

    Good sense has prevailed!!!!!!! The republic of Trinidad and Tobago has demonstrated effectively that leaders with inflated ego’s i.e. the personality cult as it were and the promotion tribal party politics will not deter them from putting country first.

    Its now time for the PNM to demonstrate that it is capable of good governance. I do anticipate that after the five year term we can all chant the slogan GREAT IS THE PNM!!!!!!!
