Government in Trinidad and Tobago

Video Transcript

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.
