I believe, the real truth behind
“Presidential power” lies in the
claim, “I have the powers you
think I don’t have, as opposed to
“I do not have the powers you
think I have”. It’s all about un-
charted territory in this country,
and how far a particular presi-
dent chooses to get involved.
Not even the Constitution dares
to specify the “duties” of a pres-
ident. You just do not go there.
Just what does the public ex-
pect of a President of the Rep of
Trinidad and Tobago, other than
to assent to Bills et,c and signing
appointments to High Office? In
fact, what are some of the duties
of a President, if we may dare to
proffer? I assume it would be to
uphold the institutions that gov-
ern a) democracy; b) justice; c)
civil and human rights, in order
to have a stable society.
Is Watson Duke wrong in call-
ing for equity regarding com-
merce and travel with Tobago?
Tobagonians, at the moment are
almost disenfranchised as a peo-
ple and are very bitter about it.
Is the call for the new president
to get involved in solving crime
reasonable or unreasonable?
This one seems out of the ball
park. Can the president cure
greed and corruption and col-
lapse of State institutions and
also inculcate a new and proper
work ethic? This one also seems
to be way out there.
Then, just what can a pres-
ident do? I suggest that the
president prevails upon any in-
cumbent Government to cease
and desist from draining the
Treasury by giving money to
every single festival or event for
carnival, culture and religious
origin and pay more attention to
community-based activities, and
practical trades such as carpen-
try, joinery, welding, plumbing
and auto and diesel mechanics.
I do acknowledge the govern-
ment’s latest thrust in sports de-
A President is bred for High
Office, and not meant to get in-
volved in the day to day running
of the country. Thus, in some
cases, may be better as off as a
rubber stamp than a rod. How
far a President can go? I say
it’s up to the individual as to
how and when to get involved
and not be held to account by
the Marrish and Parrish of the
country. In other words, leave
the President alone and be re-

Although Caribbean Airlines
staff worked overtime for the
Easter long weekend to fill the
gap of the collapsed ferry ser-
vice, transporting over 13,000
passengers on the domestic air-
bridge, there were still scores
of ferry passengers who had to
camp out at the airport in To-
bago for hours to catch a flight.

there was three boats—and
