Hints of Head on Collision between Jack and Orville.

Ashworth Jack, Leader of the
Tobago Organisation of the People
As the major parties go through their final preparations in the selection of candidates for the Tobago House of Assembly's election, there is word that the incumbent chief secretary Orville London may have to face off with Ashworth Jack, leader of the opposition. Jack made it clear that London is running scared following the talks around that he is running for the Scarborough/Calder Hall district in the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) election on January 21."There is talk that I am running in the Chief Secretary's seat … and that is his biggest fear as political leader," the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP) leader said. 

Meanwhile London seemed not to be disturb by this rumor and had this to say "Let him come,". London further added "Anybody has the choice to run in which ever seat he wants, and if he is that way inclined I have no problem with that." He admitted that while the  TOP would had made a good showing winning four seats in last election, the momentum might have shifted as the  dynamics of 2010 elections were different.

Jack who currently represents the Providence/Mason Hall/Moriah district, also got a heads up that he might have to face former comrades such as former TOP Assemblyman Dr Hughvon des Vignes, or political stalwart Hochoy Charles. However, Jack laughed off this possibility. when pressed about being in "deep waters" with other political parties and not just PNM, jack commented saying "They could all come". He said: "Hughvon could come; Hochoy could come, I am not worried. I don't know why anybody would think that I have anything to fear. Just look at the figures in the last election and you will see that I got the highest figures."

It may seem that if any of these rumors are true Tobagonians are in for a political treat and heated battle in the up coming elections January 21 2013.
