Robinson-Regis casts her vote and says she has faith in the EBC despite UNC concerns

Arouca/Maloney MP, Camille Robinson-Regis, who is also Lady Vice Chair of the People’s National Movement (PNM) is encouraging voters to “exercise your franchise” by going out to vote as this Local Government Election is an important one.

She voted this morning at the Arima Girls’ Government School and said the process was a smooth and easy one.

Following issues raised by the UNC over the Special Voter Ballot process, Robinson-Regis told members of the media that they, the PNM have had no concerns.

She said the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) of Trinidad and Tobago is one of the top electoral agencies in the world.

“The EBC has a history of training people in electoral conduct and I was very surprised to hear that there were any concerns regarding the special voting, because the EBC of T&T is one of the most well run in the region and in the Commonwealth.”

“I am of the firm view that our EBC continues to run effectively without incident.”

When asked about voter turnout, Robinson-Regis said this is an important election and citizens should come out and exercise their franchise, “especially now that the government is moving to the stage of local government reform.”

“Voting is very important, for every country,” she said.

Robinson-Regis also revealed that construction on the Balisier House has been completed and they will be returning to Balisier House tonight post election.
