THE PREVAILING political climate will be the focus of the Nation Publishing Co. Limited’s second town hall meeting for 2012.

Tomorrow’s Nation Talkback begins at 7 p.m. at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

The topic will be General Elections Are Around The Corner  – Who Should Run The Affairs Of This Country?”

The discussion will be led by a distinguished panel, including the Barbados Labour Party’s Mia Mottley, Member of Parliament for St Michael North East; the deputy leader of the People’s Empowerment Party, Robert “Bobby” Clarke; Editor Emeritus of Nation Publishing, Harold Hoyte and political scientist and CADRES pollster Peter Wickham.

The ruling Democratic Labour Party has declined an invitation to participate.

Moderator for the session and Editor-in-Chief of Nation Publishing, Kaymar Jordan, says she is disappointed that the governing party will not be represented but is looking forward to a vibrant and interactive public session.

“There is no doubt that we are into the political season and our intention as this island’s leading media company is to be in the forefront of matters of interest to our readers and the general public.

“This session is our fifth in the last two years and it is really an opportunity for members of the public to speak out on matters affecting them.

“We encourage everyone to come out and let their voices be heard.” (PR)
