Kareem Musa on the Campaign Trail

As we do every election cycle, News Five is kicking off its pre-election coverage, Meet the Candidates. In the twenty-eight days leading up to general elections, we will attempt to touch base with every single candidate, party affiliated or independent. The outcome of the political race in Caribbean Shores is undoubtedly one to look forward to, as Mayor Darrell Bradley takes on Kareem Musa in that constituency.  Today, we caught up with both aspirants. Musa told us what he thinks people will be voting on at the polls.



Kareem Musa, P.U.P. Candidate, Caribbean Shores

“Caribbean Shores as you know is an area that has gone red in the past but certainly it is not an area that votes red or blue. It is an area that looks at the calibre candidates that we are putting forward and this is the type of thing. This health care agenda…this is the type of agenda that the people in Caribbean Shores want to see. They want to see that you have a plan for the area. They want to see that you have a plan for developing the nation and that is the key difference between the UDP and the PUP. We have always been about progress and that is the type of thing that the people want to see.”



“Do you think that in the end this will be about Darrell Bradley and Kareem Musa…two young, intelligent professionals or about the bigger things…like maybe health?”

“It’s a combination. Certainly the people are looking to see the issues. And they are looking to see who has the better plan, the more realistic plan…the more obtainable plan because many times people come with all kinds of promises that cannot be fulfilled. But yesterday in Caribbean Shores we launched our localized manifesto and I have to say that it is born out of all the information gathering that we have been doing for the past year and a half on the ground so we feel very positive. It has been with the feedback and input of the community so we feel very excited about that.”
