Voters fed up of broken promises
...'stick to the manifesto'
Naresh Samaroo, 38,
The most critical
issue is crime and
health. We do not
really have much
health facilities in
Princes Town, but you
see all around things
really hard. I think the
leaders have to do
something because they seeing. In the debate,
they have to do something about crime. We
need to see their plans and they should stick to
their plans, we have a lot of broken promises
and they need to fulfill their promises out there.
Kerica Mallineau, 19, Princes Town,
Crime is the most
critical issue, and I
think the Government
needs to do something
about it because it is
becoming a serious
problem. I want to see
what are their plans
and what they think
that can do to
overcome the crime
situation and lower the crime rate in this

My biggest problem is roads and infrastructure.
They need to fix the roads in Lengua and stop them
big trucks from coming
and mashing up the road.
And they take all we land
for house in Fairfield and
they did not give we back
anything. For the debate,
I want betterment for
the people. I cannot even
get my pension and they
should look into that. I
used to plant garden and
now I cannot do that. I
want them to help the
farmers. I fed up to a point in T&T. The people who
work hard in life they ain't getting nothing

It is the health care system. When you look
around you see people lining up for hours still
in the health centres and the hospitals, and
the service itself is not up to par compared to
other developing countrie. I think the minister
have some good initiatives, but we getting
resistance from the nurses. But in order to
have change we must have sacrifice to have
that. As for the debate, I am not into the
politics, but I want to hear honesty. When
you look at their manifestoes, it is pretty and
nice. But whomever get into office they do
not stick to it. They always deviate from
what they say they will do, and I want to
hear how they intend to stick to the manifesto.

The most important issue facing the
country right now is unemployment
between the ages 16 to 18, that is why it
have so much crime and illegal activities
taking place in this country. I would like
to hear the ideas from our leaders on
how they are going to address this
problem of youth unemployment.
Grace Bowrin, 71, New Grant, retiree.
Crime should be one of the top
priority, the murders and robberies too
much. For the debate, I want to hear
what plans they have to address crime
and what plans they have for the
country in the future because there is
no development. I think we need to
have an idea of what to expect so you
know where to put your 'X'.

Shireen Padarath, homemaker,
Crime is the most critical issue.
The lack of convictions sends a
message to the criminals that
they do not need to be fearful.
That is why there is so much
lawlessness taking place. This
needs to be seriously addressed.
I would like to hear them address
what they are going to do to
make the country safer for its citizens and how they are
going to deal with bullying in schools? This is turning out
to be more of a problem in recent times.
Leah, San Juan.
going to school,
underage, I find
should be done
about that with
their parents, the child and the person
who got the child pregnant.
They should take a look at crime and unemployment because there are a lot of
youths out there selling marijuana and stuff. And it's because certain places are
not giving young people the opportunity to see what their capabilities are.
They don't have qualifications or didn't finish school to see what ambition they
have, and if they did a little weed on the roadside would be taken down.
I'm a single parent and can't get anywhere reasonable to rent. I would love to
see housing and rent debated and land leased to poor people that would be
reasonable because there are too many squatters.
Katisha McLean, Morvant.
any work, they're taking all the
work down South, especially
Since Kamla get into power,
she said that she was going to
help the poor people with
work, and the only thing that
she brought out was the
Colour Me Orange project. A
$2 wage increase wouldn't do
I would like them to debate
housing because it's unfair for
people who have been waiting
15 years for housing and you
just randomly giving out
houses to people.
Denisha Jack, Cascade.
Crime affects everyone.
We need to have more
police officers out on the
street patrolling in every
district because there are
plenty criminals out here
on the loose who are
