COP candidate for Couva North Hulsie Bhaggan last night oozed confidence as she declared the COP is no mere third party in the politics of Trinidad and Tobago but is the “first party.”
She was addressing a lively meeting at Montrose, Chaguanas. She said the COP was on target to take 90 percent of the UNC vote and 90 percent of the PNM vote.
“People have united under Winston Dookeran,” she said in reassurance at those still awaiting a UNC/COP accommodation. She said unlike their rival, the UNC Alliance, the COP does not believe in sitting in a back room in Emerald Plaza, St Augustine and making deals but rather has open and transparent processes.
Regarding criticisms of the supposed lack of charisma of COP leader Winston Dookeran, she said, “What is charisma? Is it going on stage and lying?”
She urged listeners to put aside the issue of race, declaring that one cannot take race and go to the grocery.
Alleging that the two other rival parties, UNC Alliance and PNM, were struggling to get candidates she declared that the COP has taken all the bright people adding, “We have left them with the dregs.”
“We are overflowing with candidates.”
The meeting was earlier addressed by Prakash Ramadhar, COP candidate for Caroni Central and Nirad Tewarie, COP candidate for Chaguanas East.
Yessss Hulsie, the COP is and will be the first fockin party to lose at the polls on November 5th. Every opposition supporter returning to the fockin UNC all yuh conts. All yuh still in September?
Yesss Hulsie, the UNC does probably sit in Emerald Plaza and make decisions. Quite unlike the COP who have an Executive that nobody vote for. And who make the decision to arbitrarily remove Donny Mahabirsingh after goin through the entire screening process and replace him with Dookeran family Rabindra Moonan? Wa kinda fockin backroom decision is that. Wait until he file for fockin judicial review.
Yesss Hulsie, the party with the dregs is the COP. The party that filled with dregs and rejects from the other political party.
You and yuh fockin leader are amongst the leading fockin dregs. Yuh cont!
