...wants deal with UNC, COP
THE Democratic National Assembly (DNA) is proposing an electoral arrangement between the DNA /UNC Alliance and the Congress of the People to ensure that the People's National Movement does not win 28 seats in the upcoming general elections.
Political Leader (Trinidad) of the DNA, Dr Kirk Meighoo, made the disclosure last evening at the unveiling of the DNA agenda and campaign strategy at Angostura House in Laventille yesterday.
"Trinidad and Tobago is in great danger. The threat we face is the Manning-Clarke Constitution which will make Patrick Manning Executive President with the power to decide everything," Meighoo said.
"The DNA will contest 14 seats.
The UNC Alliance and COP can arrange the other 27 seats, so that we focus all our campaign resources and energy against the PNM. This is the only option to prevent Patrick Manning from winning 28 seats and imposing his executive president dictatorship."
He said that should the UNC Alliance unite with the COP without the DNA, it would lack national credibility and they would only win 15 seats.
Meighoo said a minimum wage of $20 per person, removal of all VAT and a $2500 pension for senior citizens are all part of the DNA's manifesto commitments.
Political Leader (Tobago) of the DNA, Collin C Coker, added that the main goal of the DNA was to liberate Tobago.
"Tobago is still suffering inequity such as below basic health care, the cost of living is 20 per cent higher there than it is in Trinidad, and Tobagonians are totally dependent upon the Tobago House of Assembly," Coker said.
He said the party proposes that there be a Prime Minister of Trinidad and a Prime Minister in Tobago, to ensure that all commitments to Tobagonians are fulfilled.
Coker said the DNA will launch its constituency office in Tobago west on September 29.
