The Movement for Social Justice is a small party with an effective voice, according to its National Elections Officer, Ernesto Kesar.

Mr. Kesar said the MSJ will not contest the Barataria and Belmont East seats in the upcoming Local Government elections, but will instead focus their energy on more long term goals.

He said the MSJ has always been a staunch advocate for reform.

He said it's a widely known fact that the by-elections scheduled for later this month is ultimately a fight between the ruling PNM and the opposition UNC.

He lamented the fact that citizens still subscribe to politics based on race.

Mr. Kesar said the issue of Local Government is still a sore point, as the promise of reform has not yet been realised.

He said the powers that be like to see things on paper, but implementation is a weak point. 

Mr. Kesar was speaking on Good Morning Trinidad and Tobago.
