THE EDITOR: Once again Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar has demonstrated to us all that she is a woman of great strength and integrity. She has been fearless in her role as Prime Minister, and has always done what in her estimation was in the best interests of all of the people of TT. She has taken hard decisions when necessary and has been gentle where it was the best thing to do.
Persad-Bissessar has shown true leadership by, time and time again, putting country first over party. She removed so many people from her Cabinet for different reasons. She stands tall today as a leader of the 21st century.
Persad-Bissessar is not afraid to be attacked for being the leader who has removed most ministers from her Cabinet. She has said she would do what is right. When we analyse the history of our politics, we find innumerable instances where past prime ministers put their party before the country. There are indeed many instances throughout the reign of the PNM.
Persad-Bissessar has always said to us she puts God in front and walks behind. Maybe it is time for other party leaders to take a page out of her book.
