How PNM leader Keith Rowley would

After last Saturday s launch of govern-

national colours dominated PP s platform
rather than its usual yellow, all sides are

PP s sharp, edgy rally production bid
to fire up troops and promote govern-

frustrations between COP executives and
MP Anil Roberts, gains from PP s rally

Also after statements from Life Sport

also COP leader Prakash Ramadhar s

Ramadhar, who said the rally was his
last address due to COP s election, faces
a growing internal lobby for ex-leader
Winston Dookeran. Some COP-ers how-
