CNC3 – Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says the People’s Partnership Government is not to blame for the recession that this country is now in.

Persad-Bissessar posted a statement on her Facebook page this morning, saying that it is mismanagement of the current Government that has lead to this economic position.

The following is the former Prime Minister’s full statement:

“The Government would want you to believe that the People’s Partnership (PP) administration is to be blamed for the recession which Trinidad and Tobago is now in.

That is not so, during the People’s Partnership tenure we faced the same problem of falling oil and gas prices and did not mismanage the economy in the way the People’s National Movement (PNM) is now doing.

  1. That's a very low blow. How much damage could a government just elected could do to an economy ? Departing regimes will not leave empty handed.
