Candidate for the Independent Liberal Party (ILP) in Lopinot/Bon Air West, Jack Warner, is confident that when the ballots are counted tonight, he will hold the deadlock seat. 

With 41 seats up for grabs by 19 political parties, Warner believes that the reigning People’s National Movement (PNM) will take 20 seats along with the United National Congress (UNC). The remaining seat, he says, will be his. 

In the event of such a deadlock, both political parties will have to approach Warner to determine who will form the next government. 

The Progressive Democratic Patriots (PDP) in Tobago also has similar hopes.
