The back and forth political banter regarding death threats against the Prime Minister and Attorney General has prompted a well-known political analyst to call for the police to clear the air on the matter.
During a post-budget political meeting in Belmont on Friday night, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley said that in the lead up to the 2015 general elections two hitmen were offered US$2 million to assassinate him.
Political analyst, Dr Winford James, is predicting that this year will see a higher than normal turnout for the local government elections.
According to Dr James, voter participation in the last local government election was at roughly 34 percent. He notes, though, that having two major elections so close together will impact voter participation. He says people also will be going to the polls because of how they feel about the Rowley administration, as well as any momentum which the UNC can generate for itself.
