Trinidad and Tobago: Vote In General Elections Today

(TELESUR) – 19 parties will contest 41 seats in Trinidad and Tobago’s Parliamentary Election.

Major parties contesting the polls led motorcades across the twin-island republic as social distancing rules to stem the spread of COVID-19 prevented the holding of rallies.

The ruling People’s National Movement (PNM) is contesting in all 41 seats, while the United National Congress (UNC) is running for 39, and 28 will be contested by the Progressive Empowerment Party (PEP).

Polls opened at 6 am under the law, “every employer shall permit each elector in his employment to be absent from his work on polling day during the hours of the poll for two hours in addition to the normal midday meal hour.”
