Minister of Rural Development and Local Government Franklyn Khan says the report on the outcome of the Local Government Consultations will be made available for public scrutiny soon.
Over the past few months, the government held meetings in the 14 regional corporations to get the people's views on Local Government Reform. While many were expecting changes to be made in this year's election, this will not be done. The Minister explained the transition period would take between two to three years. So in the near future, the population would get the chance to see what is being proposed.
Minister Khan noted that delivery of Social Services will be best handled if the Regional Corporations take full control.
A message for the two major political Parties in the country.
The political leader of the National Solidarity Assembly Nirvan Maharaj told the media enough is enough and it's time for the people to save themselves.
The party is only contesting the Sangre Grande Regional Corporation in the upcoming Local Government Election. It will, however, field six other candidates in other municipalities. The reason for this according to Mr Maharaj is to allow the people to see what the NSA is capable of as it seeks to break the backs of the UNC and PNM.
The candidates for Sangre Grande are Keshore Satram, Norvan Arrindell, Patsy Ramjohn-Arrindell, Patricia Debbie-Ann Harris and Ravi Lakhan
Satram who is a former UNC alderman opted to leave the party as he said for too long the people have been disrespected by the party.
Meanwhile, Mr Arandell, a PNM member also opted to leave saying the people have been neglected and it's time for a change. He's targeting the incumbent chairman of the Toco Sangre Grande Regional Corporation, Terry Rondon.
While the members of the NSA are confident they will win. Mr Maharaj said if their plan does not work out, the party will continue to work with residents in the area to ensure they get what they deserve.
