"Congratulations to Dr Keith Rowley and the People’s National Movement on their new mandate to continue serving Trinidad & Tobago for 5 more years," Prime Minister Chastanet said.
"We wish you, your team and the people of T&T great success throughout this new term and we look forward to working together to build a more united and prosperous region," he continued.

The PNM retained 22 of its 23 seats, losing the Moruga/Tableland seat to give a final result of 22-19.
