THE Opposition UNC announced that it has suspended all of its election campaign activities until further notice, as TT braces for the effects of Tropical Storm Gonzalo.

She also said the UNC is prepared “to assist in all affected areas, as we have done on previous occasions.” Persad-Bissessar said in the constituencies not held by the UNC, “we have put mechanisms in place to provide assistance where possible.”
