Much as its allies, the People's Partnership, the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP) has pledged to review all contracts that were awarded during the period of dissolution of the Assembly and the January 21st Elections. This was articulated by the leader of the TOP Ashworth Jack.
Jack beaming with confidence of victory stated that he had received reports that the Peoples National Movement (PNM) were hastily renewing contracts and issuing new ones to their party supporters. A new TOP administration within the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) would review all contracts those renewed and those which were new.
One media house claimed that they have been inundated with calls from concerned THA employees in several divisions, complaining of being swamped with a large amount of Executive Council notes for these contracts. “We are fully aware of this issue and I could tell you that once we get in office, every one of those contracts being awarded at this time would be reviewed,” declared Jack.
Information reaching a specific media house stated that one of the new contracts awarded was one to develop housing lots at Courland in Black Rock.
