Prime Minister Patrick Manning said yesterday that he was very pleased with the performance of the protective services.
"There have been no real incidents and from what I understand is that police and the protective services are on a zero tolerance programme."
Manning made the comment yesterday while visiting the San Fernando East Constituency office.
Manning was not accompanied by his wife, Senator Hazel Manning.
He said, "she is playing mas in Port of Spain with Tribe and tomorrow (Tuesday) I will be at the Prime Minister's house. I have a lot of work to do and this will give me an opportunity to get through most of my paperwork."
He said that he was very impressed with the work that the CEPEP carnival crew is doing in San Fernando, "I couldn't believe my eyes when I came down Coffee Street."
Mayor Kenneth Ferguson was also in loud praise for the work that the workers.
"Hear nah man, before the masqueraders drop something on the ground the group was there to pick it up and put it in garbage bags," he said.
He said he was very happy with the carnival programme and with the behaviour of the revellers.
This fockin cont ha to be living in Mars or some other planet.
