-- finds low support for coalition

AN OPINION survey in July by the North American Caribbean Teachers Association (NACTA) shows current Alliance For Change (AFC) Leader Raphael Trotman is more popular than its Chairman Khemraj Ramjattan among potential voters for next year’s general elections. The poll, however, did not find much support for a `big tent’ coalition of opposition parties for the elections.
It found that former Chairman of the main opposition People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR), Winston Murray, is the front runner to lead a possible opposition coalition.
Pollster Vishnu Bisram said,“Mr. Murray faces close competition from…Trotman, former Elections Chairman Joe Singh, and PNCR Leader Robert Corbin to lead a coalition.”
“However, the idea of a big tent coalition has generated lukewarm support among voters, garnering less political support than if the parties were to contest the elections as separate entities. People say the internal contradictions among the various parties and leadership egos make it impractical for the parties to come together as a unit, and that even if they succeed in uniting, the tent will soon collapse because of personality conflict”, Bisram said.

All these opposition politicians with big egos and a huge thirst for power cannot work together
