Kamla: Executive presidency on Partnership agenda
By Juhel Browne

Story Created: Mar 9, 2012 at 9:29 PM ECT

Story Updated: Mar 9, 2012 at 9:29 PM ECT

An executive presidency for Trinidad and Tobago is not off the table for the People’s Partnership government.
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar made the disclosure that legislation is soon to be drafted for fixed terms for prime ministers and fixed dates for the local and general elections.
She described the question of an executive presidency as one that will involve changes to the Constitution.
“It is not something we will want to jump into without having discussions with those on the other side (the Opposition),” she said.
Persad-Bissessar did so while speaking to reporters yesterday at the Royal Torarica Hotel in Paramaribo, during the lunch break of the 23rd Intersessional meeting of the conference of Caricom heads of government.
The Prime Minister said research was being conducted by the Office of the Prime Minister with respect to some specific promises the People’s Partnership made during the 2010 general election campaign—two-term limits (for prime ministers), right of recall and fixed election dates.
“And that research work has now gone on to the office of the Attorney General for us to begin initial consultations,” Persad-Bissessar said.
The Prime Minister spoke on the matter in response to questions from the Express about her discussions with Jamaica Prime Minister Portia Simpson-Miller on Wednesday night on the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).
Persad-Bissessar said it is one of several issues concerning constitutional reform which are being discussed by the Caricom heads.
Former prime minister Patrick Manning was pursuing a proposal for an executive presidency while he was in office.
“Mr Manning had proposed that a person be elected by Members of Parliament, which is really how the president is elected now. So you’d be using the same process but giving greater powers. We were of the view and I am of that view that should we go the route of an executive president that person should be elected one-man-one-vote. Let the nation decide,” Persad-Bissessar said.
As for the CCJ replacing the Privy Council as Trinidad and Tobago’s final court of appeal, the Prime Minister said she sees no connection between that and Caricom’s anti-crime and security agenda.
“Indeed that was one of the ... arguments against the CCJ initially,” Persad-Bissessar said.
“Is it then the region wants to have the CCJ and not the Privy Council because we want to hang people? That’s a different issue. Yes, we want to execute the death penalty but in accordance with law.”
The Jamaican Prime Minister said she urged Persad-Bissessar to have Trinidad and Tobago cut ties with the Privy Council during their 90-minute bilateral meeting on Wednesday night.
“I believe the fact that the CCJ, its headquarters is in Trinidad and Tobago, then Trinidad and Tobago should review their stand on the CCJ,” Simpson-Miler said.
Persad-Bissessar said as Trinidad and Tobago is celebrating 50 years of independence this year, it is an opportune time for this country and the rest of Caricom to examine such issues of independence.


You left out the rest of my post lol. Leff she, she goin & join pathos just now. She & panday racing to see who going to meet him. Then Uncle Abu will take over & make roast pork illegal :lol:


Oh no, I saw the rest of your post inno. I posted the article to demonstrate how vehemently the P.P., as well as the rest of the nation protested the idea of an E.P., but it turns out it's still on the table and the supposed E.P. lynch-mob turned out to be P.P. sycophants, because they're all silent now.

I AM WOMAN
As first female PM, Kamla explains why she needs her sister


A woman's needs are different to a man's, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar said last night as she sought to make a case for the payment of a per diem to her sister, Vidwatie Newton.
In a statement issued last night, Persad-Bissessar said: "It was not unexpected that the election of a woman as Prime Minister would necessitate some changes in the arrangements for accommodation and personal travel. The official residence, for example, must be configured to meet the familial needs of the office-holder.
"Many personal issues unique to a woman warrant the involve- ment of a close and trusted assistant. This, more so, on occasions of official foreign travel when the hectic schedule and frenetic pace demands the Honourable Prime Minister's undivided attention, without the distraction of critical personal care."
The Prime Minister said the particular expertise Newton brought to bear was critical.
"Ms Vidwatie Newton was a qualified nurse with many years experience. She is responsible for the Prime Minister's diet, medication, exercise, wardrobe and other health-related and personal issues. It is quite reasonable for the Honourable Prime Minister to trust and rely upon her sister for this level of personal care and attention. It should be noted as well that this support is provided on a continuous basis literally, as and when required," Persad-Bissessar stated.
The Prime Minister said the Office of the Prime Minister, "like the Office of the President", has traditionally recognised the need for a level of personal service and ancillary support to the office-holder. She stressed there was "ample precedent" of personal staff accompanying past and present presidents and prime ministers.
The Prime Minister, who has been criticised for having the State pay substantial per diem payments to her sister, defended the practice, pointing out that a previous (PNM) Cabinet had approved such a facility.
She stated the provision of the per diem to said individuals, including persons who are not public officers, was, in fact, contained in the Cabinet Minute 780 of April 2006 captioned: "Revision of the Per Diem for Official Overseas Travel", which states: "the allowances provided in the per diem schedule be applicable to official overseas travel by non-public officers where Government is required to meet all cost".
The Prime Minister said it should be noted she had the option of formally employing her sister, Ms Newton, as a member of her personal staff. "She refused to do so to avoid any allegations of nepotism, in consequence of which, Ms Newton receives no salary from the State. Moreover, such employment would essentially be for fixed hours and a fixed work week, in keeping with industrial relations practice," she said.
The Prime Minister concluded, therefore, that in the circumstances, the criticism of the decisions of the Cabinet to have her sister accompany her on some of her more demanding overseas official visits was "unjustified, ill-conceived and totally without merit". Such criticisms "failed to appreciate the human and practical side of the hectic life and schedule of the nation's first woman Prime Minister", the statement said. It added that Government reaffirms its commitment to the principles of transparency and integrity in public life.

I AM WOMAM

So my sister deserves TT$10,000 spending money for 6 days in London because when I buy my TT$5,000 Louis Vetton shoes, she has to like herself too.

Is a woman thing you won't understand.

And if you criticize, you are a sexist pig and/or wife beater.

the part about not hiring officially is pure nonsense
leaves a lot of ambiguity and potential for bobol

it is better she is hired officially and paid a fixed salary so
she can be properly accounted for.

Some $4.6 million was spent for Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar and an official approved Cabinet delegation, which included her travel assistant—who is her sister, Vidwatie Newton, to travel to India in January.
Newton’s total expenditure was $233,600.



What exactly is a travel assistant ?

what does she do ?

How can the travel asssistant's cost be almost 3 times more than the senior government officials on the same trip ?

so I now get a BBM from the PM residence, seems the PM is going to be advised by the head of the public service on how she can "hire" her sister into the public service, strange he now want to advise her when this has been going on so long. Heard her 2 sisters live with her @ the PM's residence and her travel assistant/nurse/personal assistant enjoys an office in the diplomatic center, flies in the chopper, rolls in PM1 etc.
