Independent candidate for the Calder Hall/Scarborough district, Dr Denise Tsoiafatt-Angus, says the PNM is not winning all twelve seats in the January 25th Tobago House of Assembly (THA) elections.
The PNM stalwart urged Tobagonians to ignore all the rhetoric, as all is not well in the House of the Baliser.
“People are frustrated, disenfranchised—not with the party, but with a number of the representatives chosen by its current leadership to represent them,” she said. “Maybe twelve years ago they may have still voted for bad representation, but people are smarter now and more politically savvy.”
Tsoiafatt-Angus said she is confident she will win the Scarborough Calder Hall district because she speaks for the district, unlike the incumbent, Marslyn Melville-Jack of the PNM.
“She has failed in every way to represent the people, support the people and look after their interests,” the independent candidate charged, saying that her opponent wasted her political currency by abusing and abandoning her constituents.
According to Dr Tsoiafatt-Angus, Melville-Jack has demonstrated that her interest was not to serve, but the pomp and ceremony of office.
