The United National Congress welcomes the news from the Trinidad and Tobago Police service that no charges are to be made in relation to the so-called “emailgate” affair. Emailgate has been proven to be a hoax and conspiracy piloted by Keith Rowley and the PNM.
The UNC has always maintained that “emailgate” was an obvious case of a political dirty tricks campaign by Keith Rowley. In a blatant power grab, Rowley deliberately slandered the names of senior members of a sitting Government because he knew his Party had developed no plans or policies to win the elections fairly.
After investigations by the Integrity Commission, Google, the FBI, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Force and several independent technology expert investigations it is now clear that Keith Rowley deceived not only the country but also the members and sitting Members of Parliament within his own party.
It is disgraceful that Keith Rowley used the cloak of the Parliament to hoodwink the country for political gain, towards the direct purpose of creating a sense of panic and distrust to a sitting Government.
The UNC wishes to remind the population that none other than the then Deputy Political Leader of the PNM and then Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly, Mr. Orville London, is on record as saying that “there are game-changers and there are game deciders, and this is a game decider and at the end of the exercise there is going to be one man or one woman left standing.”
The action of Dr Rowley corrupted our Parliament and our Democracy since he used his baseless allegations as the cornerstone of his election campaign in 2015 and in his own words just this Sunday; “Trinidad and Tobago’s future lies with honesty in public office and that public officers must be made to be honest and accountable in Trinidad and Tobago.”
Keith Rowley used fraud, lies and deception to gain power in our country. This is why he has no achievements in four years and will be remembered as an absolute incompetent and head of the worst government in our history
Today, by his own words, Dr Rowley must resign as both the political leader of the PNM and as Prime Minister. Rowley lacks the competence, compassion, intelligence and character to lead Trinidad and Tobago.
