'We wish you, your team, and the people of T&T great success throughout this new term and we look forward to working together to build a more united and prosperous region.'

The PNM defeated the United National Congress (UNC), led by Kamla Persad-Bissessar, 22-19 seats during the 2020 General Election.

During his victory speech, Rowley declared: 'Given the course that we have travelled, given the obstacles that we’ve had to overcome from 2015 to 2020, I tonight want to say that this result confirms my faith in the people of Trinidad and Tobago.'
