An Arima attorney will tonight launch a new political party n T&T.
Attorney-at-law Kenneth Munroe Brown, will become the political leader of the party to be called "The Un-Represented Peoples’ Party (UPP)".
The UPP's mission is "to lift the standard of living and quality of life of each deprived and dispossessed citizen and all citizens living on the margins of life, to propel Trinidad and Tobago forward, as a beacon of political, social and economic success in the region and the world, within two electoral terms".
The party’s symbol will depict four golden oil and gas pipelines through which the nation’s wealth flows, wealth which the UPP contends must be shared equally among our citizens.
The party has listed its aims as:
* ‘outlaw’ crime, corruption and all forms of criminal activity,
* end poverty and homelessness,
* be relentless in ensuring that there is equality of treatment for all citizens,
* induct an inquisitorial process, to ensure that justice is evenly dispensed across the board with violators (whether they be judicial officers or not), being called to book and to account.
The launch will take place this afternoon in Arima, and a statement by the founder says that it will honour former prime ministers Basdeo Panday and Patrick Manning.
