Local Government Election 2019

By: Digital Media

Monday December 2, 2019

Are you voting today for party? Your candidate of choice? Or no one at all? Approximately 1,079,969 electors are eligible to go to the polls to elect 139 councillors to serve in the 14 municipal corporations in Trinidad. Voting in the 2019 local government election takes place at 2,107 polling stations. Polls opened at 6 a.m. and will close at 6 p.m.


POLICE have arrested a 25-year-old relative in connection with the murders of a grandmother, mother and son at a house in San Juan on Friday afternoon.

The grandmother of 15-month-old Sirah Williams Paris stood near the child’s butterfly-sticker-­covered casket yesterday and begged for people to stop ­bla­ming her.

The Police Service Commission (PolSC) has withdrawn the suspension letter which it had issued on Friday, September 17, to Gary ­Griffith.

Gary Griffith is adamant he’s still acting Police Commissioner although he has agreed to defer resumption of duty voluntarily.

There is a saying that “time heals all wounds”.

But for Helen Bergendahl, the passage of time has done little to heal the heartbreak of losing her mother six years ago.
