Tobago political parties to have special debate


The Trinidad and Tobago Debates Commission (TTDC) will host a special debate for the political leaders of the parties in the upcoming Tobago House of Assembly elections, Carlos Dillon, member of the local organising committee for Tobago said at a media launch in the Lowlands Mall on Monday.

"The people of Tobago would be able to have a better understanding of the goals and purposes of the political leaders running for the Tobago House of Assembly elections, he stated and it will allow Tobagonians to make a more informed decision on the day of the elections," Dillon said.

There will be only one debate with the four political leaders due to time constraints. This would be broadcast live on all television  and radio stations, at 8 p.m. on January 10, 2013, explained Catherine Kumar, CEO of TTDC.

Taking part in the debate are the People's National Movement (PNM), Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP), The Platform of Truth (TPT) and the Movement for Development and Democracy (MDD).
The Tobagonians on the local organising committee which is planning and organising the debate are Carlos Dillon, Anne-Marie de Gazon, George Leacock and Janet Parks. Moderator for the debate will also be a Tobagonian.

The TTDC is in the process of planning a series of debates for the upcoming local government elections and they are hoping this can continue for all future elections.
