Coalition, ex-partners, opposition in post-rift review

In defending Sunday’s withdrawal and his own resignation as a government senator, MSJ leader David Abdulah said he was troubled by what he saw in the two-year-old People’s Partnership government.

The United National Congress (UNC), the main coalition partner in the four-party government, kept up its message that the loss of MSJ was a boon to the remaining members of the coalition.

But in describing the withdrawal as regrettable but understandable, the Congress of the People (COP), the other major coalition partner, appeared to share the fledgling party’s concerns about the way in which the two-island republic is being governed.

And the party the allied forces defeated at the polls two years ago, the opposition People’s National Movement (PNM), blasted the coalition government as a dysfunctional sham, and sought to portray the alliance as really a one-party UNC show.

Political analyst Derek Ramsamooj told the Caribbean Media Corporation Monday night that Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar faced the remaining issue of continuing to project the coalition as a multiracial alternative to the PNM.
