Princes Town MP, Barry Shiva Padarath has thrown his full support on behalf of his constituents behind UNC political leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

In a letter sent to the Guardian yesterday that Persad-Bissessar enjoys his full unconditional support as the leader of the UNC.
The Princes Town MP stated that Persad-Bissessar had demonstrated that she was committed to empowering young people by the number of young fresh faces she has placed in the Parliament.
He pointed out that the diverse group of MPs heading into the Parliament on the UNC bench are highly qualified and skilled ranging from doctors, lawyers, engineers and entrepreneurs.
Padarath who is known for his fiery contributions in the Parliament indicated that Persad Bissessar was the right person to guide the new MPs and steer the party through the turbulent waters that the country was experiencing. He further stated that the manipulation of the COVID situation through fear mongering and blatant lies was the leg that the PNM stood on in this General Election.
Still there are thousands of persons in the country who remain impoverished, without jobs and without any assistance from the state during this time. If the results stand, the country is in for a harsher reality with the PNM this time around he said.
