Fixin’ T&T condemns Warner appointment

In the context of the several international and local allegations of corruption, FIXIN’ T&T categorically condemns the appointment of the Minister of Works and Infrastructure Jack Warner to the position of Acting Prime Minister.

This latest development again brings into question the judgment of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

The Prime Minister has a responsibility, among other things, to vigorously guard the reputation of Trinidad & Tobago and must demonstrate a commitment to ensuring that it becomes one that is associated with the highest standards of ethics and integrity; more so, considering the promises and assurances of same made during the campaign of the People’s Partnership in 2010.

We remind the Prime Minister and our citizens that Trinidad & Tobago is ranked 91st out of 183 countries on the Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index of 2011.

On a scale of 0 to 10 with 0 being the highest perception of corruption and 10 being the lowest, T&T scored 3.2. By comparison, in 2010, T&T was ranked 73rd out of 178 countries with a score of 3.6.

By this appointment, what message are we sending to our citizens as well as the international community?
