Grenada parties upbeat
ST. GEORGE’S — Two days before Grenadians go to the polls the country’s two main political parties are expressing confidence at the prospects of forming the next government.
Some 62,000 voters are registered to vote in Tuesday’s elections that should be decided between the National Democratic Congress, led by Prime Minister Tillman Thomas, and the New National Party, led by former Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell.
In 2008, the NDC won 11 of the 15 seats up for grabs to remove the NNP from office after 13 years.
But observes say the NDC is not as united as it was in the lead-up to the last general election.
During its term in office, the party has been plagued by infighting among legislators, leading to the dismissal or resignation of key party officials. (Gleaner)
