Keith Rowley, T&T President-elect, leader of PNM

Opposition PNM defeats PP in Trinidad & Tobago general elections

The Keith Rowley-led opposition People’s National Movement (PNM) party defeated the incumbent Kamla Persad-Bissessar‘s People’s Partnership (PP) coalition of parties yesterday in Trinidad and Tobago’s (T&T) general elections.

Though losing the popular vote by an estimated 100,000 votes, the PNM was able to capture 23 of the 41 constituencies (“seats”) and re-take hold of the twin-island nation after losing in 2010, then lead by many-term Prime Minister Patrick Manning.

Incidentally (not sure if it’s ironic), Keith Rowley is a trained geologist as was the prior PNM party leader, Patrick Manning.

What yuh think about the new leadership in T&T.  Talk to me nuh.
