The Democratic Party of T&T
(DPTT) plans to contest all the seats
in the upcoming general election.
However, the party has not begun the
screening process for potential can-
The DPTT held a press conference
yesterday at the Chaconia Hotel, Saddle
Road, Maraval, where it announced
that it would be pursuing all 41 con-

prospective candidates yet.
