People are saying
People want to know how much it is costing the PNM campaign for the December 2 Local Government Elections after seeing the television and radio coverage of a public meeting in Tunapuna last Thursday night.
Several television and radio stations carried the PNM meeting at Exodus Pan Yard, Tunapuna “live” and there was a repeat the following night on TV6.
Many observers are saying that the Government has been in office for the past four years and has delayed passing the promised campaign finance reform.
The PNM is expected to spend millions in this year’s Local Government Election on traditional media advertisements, political meetings, sound systems, jerseys, flyers and the distribution of manifestos and flyers to lure voters to the polls.
Political observers are hoping that campaign financé reform will come before next year’s General Election.
However, there are reports that the UNC will be spending less money than the PNM, whose advantage is that they are now in government and have access both directly and indirectly to the public purse.
People are still waiting to find out the amount of money the PNM made from the ten new SUV’s used for the raffle to rebuild Balisier House. They want to know how many tickets were sold. Many of them also want to know who were the winners of the luxury cars.
