Jack Warner (as part of the investigation into FIFA) has claimed this morning that FIFA had a direct hand in the elections held in Trinidad and Tobago in 2010. According to Wikipedia the results of that election were as follows:

People's Partnership Coalition 432,026 votes (60%) winning 29 seats
People's National Movement 285,354 votes (40% -6% on 2007) winning 12 seats (-14 seats)
Independents and Others 2,347 votes (0%) winning 0 seats

Wikipedia states that "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", In 2007, the UNC and Congress polled a total of 53%

People's Partnership Coalition (United National Congress + allies) is mostly Indian. The UNC is particularly Indian and the allies are minor non-Indian parties (Blacks, Muslims, people from Tobago)

People's National Movement is mostly Black.

Jack Warner was a rare Black member of the UNC. He was deselected by the party for corruption though and he has since formed his own party called the Independent Liberal Party.
