HISTORY

Trinidad was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1498. It was inhabited by Carib Indians, but also by Arawak tribes of which few traces now remain in the highly mixed population. Trinidad had the same tumultuous fate as the other islands of the Antilles where European rivalries clashed. It was Spanish-owned until 1797, but with French incursions; it then passed to Great Britain which confirmed its possession by the Amiens Treaty of 1802. In 1889 it was united in a single administration with Tobago. In January 1958 he joined the new West Indies Federation. In 1962 Trinidad and Tobago became independent as a separate state while remaining in the Commonwealth. Since August 1976, Trinidad and Tobago has been a republic within the British Commonwealth. Political life, long influenced by British habits, is centered on generally respected democratic rules. Head of the People’s National Movement (PNM, National People’s Movement, the party of blacks), spokesman for the interests of the black population, and prime minister from independence to March 1981 was Eric Williams, one of the most prestigious politicians of the Antilles. At his death, the office was inherited by George Chambers, a leading man of the PNM who won 26 of the 36 seats in the National Assembly in the 1981 elections. In a context of significant economic difficulties, the 1986 elections marked the interruption of the thirty-year continuity of government of the PNM, with the affirmation of the National Alliance for Reconstruction (NAR, National Alliance for Reconstruction) as expressed by the head of the government Arthur Robinson. Thwarted an attempted coup organized by a Muslim group in July 1990, in the elections of December 1991 the NAR, unable to respond adequately to the discontent and expectations of the population, was defeated by the PNM, whose leader Patrick Manning obtained the post of prime minister. In 1995, following the new elections, the leadership of the executive was entrusted to the leader of Indian ancestry Basdeo Panday of the United National Congress (United National Congress, the party of the Indians), while in February 1997 Arthur Robinson returned to the political scene, elected by the Parliament to the presidency of the Republic to replace the moderate Muslim leader Noor Mohammed Hassanali in office since 1992. In the elections held on 11 December 2000 Prime Minister Panday came out victorious, thus reconfirming himself at the helm of the country for another 5 years. In November 2007 the legislative elections were held, won by the PNM led by Patrick Manning. In 2013 Antony Carmona became president.
