People usually come out early and late. During the day, normally it is very slow.”   He said the violence that occurred in the run-up to the elections was quite unfortunate, but believes citizens are more conscious now. As the former San Fernando mayor, he said he was confident that the PNM would win all nine districts San Fernando City Corporation.   The PNM has already won the Mon Repos/Navet district with the UNC candidate withdrawing his nomination because of ill health.
