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.[1][2] 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.[1] The coalition won the election by securing 29 out of 41 seats in the House of Representatives.[3]

On May 26, 2010, Persad-Bissessar was sworn in as Prime Minister by President George Maxwell Richards, and Anand Ramlogan was sworn in as a Senator and Attorney General.
