Last week, Kirt Sin-
nette, who was COP
executive s field opera-

from that post.
He had backed Seep-

among those who was
critical of Ramadhar s
leadership before the poll.
In his resignation letter
to COP general secretary
expressing concern at the
way the election had
gone, Sinnette also noted
the threat of legal battles
and allegations of fraud
and forgery made by COP
dissidents Satu Ramcha-
ran and Kishore Ramad-
har.Noting a low turnout
for the election, Sinnette
added: "In view of the
above and consistent with
the one of the highest
principles in the exercise
of democracy I now ten-

Some $575 million has been spent
on 4,095 school repair projects by the
Government during the last four years.
So said Education Minister Dr Tim
Gopeesingh at a news conference at
his ministry at St Clair yesterday.
He added several large, medium and
small contractors were employed for
the projects which were completed in
the 39 constituencies in Trinidad.
"There is no politics by this govern-
ment as far as provision of services for
the entire country. Whether it s edu-
cation, health, crime or any of the
areas," Gopeesingh said.
A large chunk of the $575 million, he
said, was spent on schools in the con-
stituencies of the Opposition despite
claims by some Opposition members
that such schools were being neglected
by the Government.
"In the constituencies represented
by members of the Opposition we
spared no ends to make sure all the
schools were taken care of.
"Of the $575 million, some $160 mil-
lion was spent on 12 constituencies
being managed by the Opposition,"
He said more than 80 per cent of
the schools were more than 50 years
and infrastructure posed a challenge.
Gopeesingh said 14 primary schools
were almost completed and another 21
were under construction.
He said ten secondary schools also
were now under construction which
the Government w hopes to complete
before next year.
During the July/August vacation some
300 denominational schools have put
in requests for school repairs.
"In addition to 73 ECCE (Early Child-
hood Care Education) centres which
have been built a long time ago needing
repair... so that s the mammoth under-
taking we have. Work has already start-
ed," Gopeesingh said.
Dr Tim: $575m
spent on school
repairs in 4 years
