Congress of the People political leader Winston Dookeran has said if the PNM is returned to power, the country may be faced with a constitution made to order for an Executive President.
In his Republic Day message, Dookeran said on this 31st anniversary of the republic, constitutional change is generally considered a must have.
The critical outcomes of constitutional change should be enhanced entitlements for the citizens, and the protection of those rights.
"A new constitution for Trinidad and Tobago should therefore reinforce individual rights, protect the supremacy of Parliament, ensure the separation of powers, strengthen our democratic policies, improve the administration of justice, uphold the equality of opportunity and generally share in a vision of safety, peace and harmony for all in our society.
A constitution will serve our country best only if the people are involved in the process from which it emerges," he said.
He also delivered a warning.
"Should this government be returned to office, the country might well be faced with a constitution commissioned by and made to order for a prime minister who has already constructed a Presidential Complex for an Executive President, i.e. himself," Dookeran said.
"This prime minister has shown scant regard for Parliament; for process and protocol, and for the Constitution, according to a series of Privy Council judgments."
Trinidad and Tobago must be mindful of these harsh realities, "as we approach the moment of decision on the future governance of our republic", he added.
"We are faced with a leader who concludes every political rally with the declaration that his party is all powerful, and will be dominant over all groups in our society. Think about that consequence," Dookeran said.
This fockin pussy understands all this, yet still he is prepared to divide the opposing electorate.
Every body in Trinidad, Toabgo and Trinis all over the world understand one thing. If the opposing forces dont unite, they will clear the way for the PNM to win a constitutional majority.
Everybody except cont for General Election 2007 Winston Dookeran and the fockin lunatics in the half fockin dead COrPse.
