PM resumes conversations

PRIME Minister Dr Keith Rowley will resume his “Conversations” with the national community tonight. A statement issued yesterday by the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) said that the second Conversations with the Prime Minister will take place from 8 pm tonight at the Point Fortin East Secondary School, Point Fortin. The statement said the objective of this national forum is to engage the national community as we continue to work together to navigate our challenging circumstances towards a brighter future.

At the last Conversations forum held in Maloney on February 7, Rowley evoked heated debate within the population when he made the statement, “I’m not in your bedroom. I’m not in your choice of men.” A subsequent statement from the OPM said some groups misinterpreted Rowley’s remarks and those groups claimed he was blaming the victim of a crime committed a few days earlier This statement said, “The Prime Minister was conversing with the people and his statement has been taken out of context. He categorically rejects this interpretation of his statement.” The statement added that the Prime Minister wants women to be empowered to make smart choices and does not blame the victims of domestic violence but rather sympathises with the victims and the families of both the victims and the perpetrators.”
