Opposition Leader Kamla Persad Bissessar Sunday called for fresh general elections in Trinidad and Tobago.

According to CMC, her call came after Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley fired his Public Utilities Minister Marlene McDonald less than 72 hours after she was sworn in as a Cabinet minister.

Persad Bissessar said in a statement – “The Prime Minister should understand that the country has lost patience with his incompetence and should now remove himself from office and seek a fresh mandate.”

The last general election was held in Trinidad on September 7, 2015, when Rowley led his People’s National Movement (PNM) to a 23-18 victory over the ruling coalition People’s Partnership administration headed by Persad Bissessar.
