AN act of desperation.
Interim political leader of the Independent Liberal Party (ILP) Jack Warner has dismissed allegations that his party was engaged in a conspiracy to bribe electors for their votes in today’s local government elections.
He said this allegation, which came from Government ministers Dr Roodal Moonilal, Attorney General Anand Ramlogan and COP deputy leader Lincoln Douglas yesterday, was a desperate act and part of the dirty politics he had warned against.
“That is part of the dirty tricks I talked about last night, that is all. Let them meet the EBC (Elections and Boundaries Commission), I am not bothered by that, that cannot stop the results tomorrow (today). These allegations are totally unfounded. I am saying it is part of the dirty tricks campaign and I have no time now for this nonsense, total bull****,” said Warner.
“It is an act of desperation and not even that can help them, there is no truth to that whatsoever,” he added.
Warner went to mass yesterday at Mt St Benedict and then to a motorcade in Valencia, Vega de Oropouche and North Manzanilla to garner votes in the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation.
He then went to a motorcade in Central Trinidad to rally support for ILP candidates in the Chaguanas Borough Corporation.
Warner reiterated that the people need to be sober today, vote for their rights and defend their liberty.
He noted that at the ILP’s final election rally at Endeavour on Saturday, he issued a strong warning to the people to beware of the tricks from the People’s Partnership camp.
“Beware of the regimen of dirty tricks with which they shall try to frighten you. You will hear microphones at 11 p.m. on Sunday night going through
your villages telling you all manner of nasty and untrue stories about our candidates, about your party, about your political leader...disregard them completely.
“Hold no dread for the austerity of their faces. Eyeball them with a smile (if you can) because Freedom Day is here.”
Warner said today the ILP will celebrate its victory at the polls at the party headquarters at Mulchan Seuchan Street, Chaguanas.
