EDITOR, The Tribune.
HOW is it that no one in the PLP ever dared to broach such a subject when LOP was PM for twenty-five years? Had such a new system been in place, LOP would not have been returned after the first election because he called, I believe, two elections shortly thereafter - one a year later after the first, and another shortly after that...
There is no such flexibility in countries like the United States - even in dire circumstances. I believe.
It seems that the current system served the PLP well when LOP was leader. I suppose in their eyes no one else should continue the system even though the date called is within the period allowed.
