A statement linking the UNC to evil spirits has caught the attention of the Council for Responsible Political Behaviour.
Chairman Dr Bishnu Ragoonath today sent out a media release, in response to PNM MP Camille Robinson Regis’ comments at the party’s public meeting in La Horquetta last Friday.
She urged supporters to ward off evil in a statement the council considers to be outside of expected norms.
Dr Ragoonath says her comments seem to be designed to encourage behaviour that could reinforce divisions that are part of T&T’s political culture.
He urges party officials, supporters and the general public to ensure that the highest ethical standards are maintained as the election campaign reaches its climax.
