The constituency of La Horquetta/Talparo is one that both the reigning People’s National Movement (PNM) and their main competitors, the United National Congress (UNC) are throwing a keen eye on. 

While residents have mixed perspectives on past and future representation, many have similar issues to report. Bad road infrastructure, inconsistent water supplies and crime are hot button issues in the area and while some have wavering hope, others are looking forward to what new representation will bring. 

The PNM has fielded General Secretary of the party, Foster Cummings as their candidate while the UNC has offered their Deputy Political Leader, Jearlean John.
