FORMER Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith has officially launched his political party – the National Transformation Alliance (NTA).

On April 30, Griffith launched a video presentation informing the public as to how they can become a registered supporter of his party, the latest to be formed in Trinidad and Tobago.

A lighthouse is the party’s logo.

In the 2.09 minute video Grifith said, “A key constant in my life is that of service to my country and my people…I am more than ever committed to the mission of improving our country through transformation and continued national service this time through the National Transformation Alliance, the NTA.”

He continued, “No man is an island. Our country has noble, progressive, visionary, hard-working citizens who desire to fulfill our motto, together we aspire, together we achieve…For those who share similar views that our nation requires immediate and urgent transformation, this is your bridge to that lighthouse.”

The new political leader encouraged people to visit the NTA’s social media pages to find out more about the party and how they can be registered supporters.

Griffith, following the Police Service Commission imbroglio that saw the dismantling of the previous commission and the call to investigate persons in high office including Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley, stated that he would be getting involved into politics as change was needed.

About Griffith

Griffith was a member of the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force for 15 years, where he attained the rank of Captain.

He was appointed Commissioner of Police of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service in 2018 and made several changes and advancements in the police service. His three-year contract ended last August.

He previously served as a temporary Opposition Senator during the 8th Republican Parliament under the United National Congress (UNC).

In 2013, Griffith was appointed Minister of National Security under the People’s Partnership administration led by UNC leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

When asked by AZP News if there may be alliances with other parties, this was his response: “Would you be asking UNC if they will join with PNM to form the next government? Doubt it.”

On Sunday, the NTA issued its first official media release under its banner highlighting the issue of the committee report concerning the nationwide blackout that occurred last February.
