TCI’s ONE-MAN OPPOSITION

Regional 17 Mar, 2021 Follow News

Mr. Edwin Astwood

The Turks and Caicos sole opposition member in the new parliament has pledged to keep the government on its toes.

Speaking during the swearing-in of the new legislators, Edwin Astwood, the one-man opposition member and Leader of the Opposition for the People’s Democratic Movement (PDM), said he intends to be “the strongest Opposition in the history of our country.”

Mr Astwood won the solitary seat for the PDM after it was swept out of office in last month’s landslide win for the ruling Progressive National Party (PNP).

The former PDM minister of health in acknowledging that the PDM has secured an overwhelming mandate, stated: "One of the wonderful things about democracy is that when the people are unhappy, it is their right, their obligation and their duty to express their unhappiness, much to the regret most times to the incumbents.”
