Trinidad is in political limbo

 

Port Of Spain - A week after an apparent victory for the Prime Minister, Mr Basdeo Panday, and his ruling United National Congress in national elections, Trinidad and Tobago still did not have a new government yesterday. A legal challenge by the opposition People's National Movement to the legitimacy of two winning UNC candidates left the Caribbean republic of 1.3 million, rich in offshore oil and natural gas reserves, in a state of political limbo.
