Government in Trinidad and Tobago
We have a Prime Minister and a President. Normally the President is higher. But in this case the Prime Minister is the one who controls most of the say. She is advised, as well, by the president. Same thing with upper house [and] lower house [of Parliament]. I think it's basically the same. The only difference is the Prime Minister is like the President here [in the United States]. We have the same Speaker of the House. It goes down the same chain of command, everything. As I said, the only difference is that the Prime Minister is like the President of the United States, for the islands. And that's in most Caribbean countries, I believe.
