The President and his wife are flying out for Carnival. They will be spending the weekend in Florida, USA.
According to a release from the President’s office, President Anthony Carmona and his wife Reema will leave the country today and return on Ash Wednesday.
President of the Senate Timothy Hamel-Smith will act as President during this period.
Before his departure, President Carmona attended many of the more popular all-inclusive parties of the season —Fatima College, St Mary’s, South Cancer Society, One Fete—and also Army Fete.
Former president Max Richards was the first Trinidad and Tobago President to play mas.
Richards had always been involved in Carnival long before he became President.
