The People's Partnership is a political coalition in Trinidad and Tobago among four political parties: the United National Congress, the Congress of the People, the Tobago Organization of the People, the National Joint Action Committee. Its currents political leader is the Hon. Kamla Persad-Bissessar. The coalition was formed in advance of the 2010 general election attempting to form a multi-ethnic opposition bloc against the government of Patrick Manning. The coalition won the election by securing 29 out of 41 seats in the House of Representatives.
In the 2015 General Elections, the coalition won 18 of the 41 seats in the elections to form the main Opposition party in the 11th parliament of Trinidad and Tobago. As a result of the People's Partnership defeat at the polls, Mrs. Persad-Bissessar was appointed Leader of the Opposition by President Anthony Carmona on September 21, 2015.
