SCARBOROUGH, Tobago, Jan 21, CMC – Voters have started casting their ballots for a new Tobago House of Assembly (THA) following a four week intensive campaign that included Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar and senior members of her coalition People’s Partnership government.

The senior Cabinet ministers have been lending support to the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP), one of the four partners in the coalition Trinidad and Tobago government, which is seeking to take control of the 12-member THA from the main opposition People’s National Movement (PNM).

But Political observers regard the poll as a referendum on the coalition partnership that came to power in May 2010, and has had “several missteps” over the past two and half years in power.
