The People’s Progressive Movement held a national campaign rally in the field next to Grand Harbour last Saturday night.
More than 1,000 people attended the event, during which PPM t-shirts, caps, bumper stickers were distributed.
The party’s campaign manifesto was also launched during the rally.
The event was televised live and was the largest PPM campaign event to date.
Bodden Town candidate Anthony Eden spoke first during the rally, saying that the most important quality of a politician was unquestionable integrity.
Mr. Eden said people could hold the PPM to deliver on its manifest promised.
‘It will be our Bible for the next four years,’ he said.
Mr. Eden likened the upcoming election as a battle between good and evil, a common theme for the PPM’s approach during the evening.
George Town candidate Lucille Seymour said the political landscape had changed.
‘The problems facing country require a collective approach,’ she said. ‘They cannot be solved by shooting from the hip. I believe the days of the Lone Ranger are over.’
East End candidate Arden McLean then energised the crowd with language highlighting the battle of political good versus evil.
General Secretary Alden McLaughlin said there would not be another PPM campaign of the magnitude of Saturday’s rally until just before the 11 May election.
