Charles on UNC phone campaign complaints:
Noboby's rights being infringed
Campaign manager and gen-
eral election candidate for the
People s Partnership Rodney
Charles says citizens privacy
rights are not being infringed
by the party s campaign
He was responding to ques-
tions regarding the use of citi-
zens personal cellphone numbers
and email addresses to canvass
support for the Partnership.
For the past few weeks citizens
have been expressing concern
and annoyance over telephone
calls from the PP, with either a
voice recording of Prime Minister
Kamla Persad-Bissessar or a rep-
resentative conducting a survey.
People have also received
emails soliciting volunteers for
the PP campaign or encouraging
them to vote for "Team Kamla,"
especially on social media web-
Citizens online have ques-
tioned the source of the Part-
nership s mailing list and whether
their right to privacy was not
In an interview yesterday,
however, Charles said no one s
privacy was being infringed.
"It is marketing. I used to get
calls and texts from Obama (US
President Barack Obama),"
Charles said, referring to the
campaigns of American President
He said in marketing there
were ways of getting contact
information for specific target
"In the 17th century someone
used to walk around and drop
things in your mailbox. Things
have changed but there is nothing
illegal about it. We did not get
it from TSTT or Digicel," Charles
While in many countries polit-
ical campaigns now include these
tactics, there is a fine line
between what is legal and what
isn t. In fact, many companies
internationally are compelled by
the law to request permission
before sharing personal and pri-
vate information of consumers.
According to Charles, the Peo-
ple s Partnership had several ways
of accessing contact information,
including referrals from people
who gave their friends numbers
and email addresses to be part
of a list.
"Prime Minister Kamla Per-
sad-Bissessar is committed to listen-
ing to the views of all citizens and
taking their perspectives on board as
she strives to develop policies and
programmes to take T&T forward into
the 21st century.
"As she engages the citizenry, she
incorporates all available media,
including direct mails via mail boxes,
telephone contact, cottage meetings,
town hall discussions, walkabouts,
social media and electronic media,"
Charles said in a response.
He said the media were available
to all parties and they afford her the
opportunity to craft the best policies
based on constant contact with, and
feedback from, voters throughout
He said at all times people con-
tacted had the freedom to not engage
and decline interaction as that was
their right, which is respected by the
Many people have said that was
not true as there did not seem to be
any option to unsubscribe from mail-
Charles said the techniques were
used by marketing companies, polit-
ical parties and polling agencies
throughout the developed world.
"This is 21st century campaigning
which the PNM party seems entirely
unaware of at this time," he added.
But this modern approach to cam-
paigning is being heavily criticised
on social media.
Belmont resident Genesee said she
was disturbed and confused about
who gave the People s Partnership
"I am disturbed because I will like
to know why my number is just out
there for people to randomly call me.
I am a very private person and it
makes me very uncomfortable."
Another citizen online complained
that she had gotten multiple calls and
emails and had responded to the email
asking the sender to discontinue but
had received no response.
"The emails keep coming and it is
very annoying," she added.
