The splitting of votes among the United
National Congress (UNC), Congress of the People
(COP) and the Independent Liberal Party (ILP)
would result in the People s National Movement
(PNM) walking away with seven corporations
This was one of the findings from a poll con-
ducted by the North American Caribbean Teachers
Association (NACTA). The findings were released
"The findings show that splintering of the part-
nership support between COP or UNC and ILP
put the PNM in the lead in Arima, Sangre Grande,
Tunapuna, Laventille, Port-of-Spain, Diego Martin
and San Fernando, among other corporations."
Overall, the poll is turning out to be "a contest
between the PNM and ILP in corporations where
COP is contesting." Other findings of the report

"the COP has not been getting much political
traction with most of its supporters crossing over
to the ILP."
The ILP is also causing some havoc for the UNC,

the UNC is contesting, it is a three-way battle
but the UNC is also losing a lot of support to the
The poll also found that that division of the
People s Partnership support enhances the PNM s
prospects of regaining corporations it lost in July
2010 with the poll showing the PNM leading in
a majority of the 14 corporations.
