Council for Responsible Political Behaviour concerned by “racist statements”


    Another national entity has joined the condemnation of racism in T&T – this time, the Council for Responsible Political Behaviour has weighed in.

    The organization says it is gravely concerned by the racist statements made in the wake of the General Election, as well as the feelings of ethnic tension caused by these statements.

    It is calling on party leaders to send a message urging persons to avoid language and actions that promote hate, racism, denigration and disrespect.

    It notes that leaders must abide by the commitment made under the Code of Ethical Political Conduct regarding the maintenance of peace.
