‘Prodigal son’ always welcome—TOP leader
One of the leaders of the People’s Partnership, Minority Leader in the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Ashworth Jack says leader of the Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) David Abdulah will be welcomed back with open arms in due course. Jack, leader of the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP), said so in his address at Thursday night’s second-anniversary rally of the People’s Partnership at Mid Centre Mall, Chaguanas.
Abdulah had strongly objected to the rally. He said it should not have taken place in the midst of many critical issues affecting the population. He did not participate in the meeting on Thursday night. Jack said Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar must be highly commended for leading a five-party coalition with four leaders—an apparent reference to Abdulah’s decision to stay away from the event.
He said the five parties were led by “four strong-headed men” and the PM successfully kept them together. “Don’t worry about the one who is outside, we will be waiting to welcome the prodigal son back into the fold,” Jack told the cheering audience.
He said the rally was a show of democracy in action. He said in the past, governments would account to people once every five years or so but the PP was doing so on an annual basis, which was democracy in action.
