Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley says he is
ready and willing to take part in a national debate,
should a debate come to pass.
Speaking to reporters outside the Mucurapo Street
Masjid, San Fernando, yesterday morning, Rowley
said once the date proposed by the T&T Debates
Commission met "certain requirements" he would
Rowley joined members of the masjid in distributing
alms to members of the public who lined the streets
outside, where he was greeted with cheers and hugs
by a number of people.
"I am not involved in the negotiations, but there
are some arrangements in place and if those arrange-
ments are met we will take part. The PNM has a
team that has met with the Debates Commission
that is led by chairman, vice-chairman and some of
our senior people," he said. "So at the end of the
day, if they manage to organise one, then I would
be very willing to take part."
Although he declined to comment on the current
conflict between the Debates Commission and the
Government, he labelled the conflict "unnecessary."
"I am a little disappointed that a matter like this,
and I see a lot of acrimony today in the papers
between the commission and the Government," said
Rowley. "I think that was unnecessary, and I think
if we can t manage to organise a little debate what
else can we manage to do."
He said the PNM had taken part in debates before
and the party was hopeful a debate would take place
before the election date.
"It is not the first time, and we in the PNM have
taken part in 2010 and 2013 and we are willing to
take part again, but I am hoping that it comes up."
Rowley also visited the Macoon Street Masjid in
Victoria Village, San Fernando, where he praised wor-
shippers for their discipline throughout the month
"Ramadan is about discipline. If there is one thing
we have been in short supply in T&T and in our his-
tory is our attention to discipline. So today, I can say
continue to hold that light out to the rest of the
country, that staff out to the country, and continue
to make all of us more disciplined."
Rowley was accompanied by San Fernando Mayor
Kazim Hosein, who addressed worshippers briefly,
urging them to learn from the sacrifices they made
