DESPITE Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s statement that the present Covid-19 situation in Trinidad and Tobago was not severe enough to have general elections postponed, Fishermen and Friends of the Sea disagrees.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Gary Aboud, corporate secretary of the group stated that this country should follow the example of another Caribbean country – The Bahamas.

He said: “The Bahamas has experienced a spike in Covid-19 cases with a 3000% increase in the past three weeks going from 22 to 649 cases. The result, their leader immediately called for a two week ‘total lockdown’. The Bahamas even though suffering from economic impacts still adopted a responsible approach by calling for a national lockdown, but they acted too late. Our leader should not wait until our numbers reflect those of the Bahamas to make a decision but rather take the proactive approach to protect public health and safety.”

Aboud added that the public’s health should remain Government’s number one priority.

“Is it because of political expediency that PM Rowley does not want to defer elections? What is the hurry?” he asked.
