ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada, May 16, CMC – The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has admitted that it is yet to settle all its outstanding debts relating to the 2013 general election.
“As it relates to debts, the party is going to pay its debts, we believe in ensuring that we put all measures in place, we do not want to have a situation where we are still owing people, we are continuously engaging people to make sure we pay off some of our debts,” said Assistant Public Relations Officer, Ron Redhead during the party’s weekly news conference on Monday.
NDC GrenadaRedhead was unable to provide details as to the type of debt – and thel amount but confirmed that if an election date was to be announce, the NDC will contest all 15 constituencies.
He also said that the party has identified candidates for all 15 constituencies , however their names are yet to be made public.
Meanwhile, the opposition party is preparing to have its first general council meeting.
The party’s constitution provides for two general councils and a convention to elect an executive to be each year.
According to Redhead, the meeting – that will be a working session – will be held in June, however the date is not known .
“It has nothing to do with the elections of officers or any of that sort but to continue to put preparations and means in place for an impending general elections and other party organisational work.”
A general election is constitutionally due here no later than May 2018, and there is widespread speculation that Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell, who led his ruling New National Party (NNP) to victory in 2013 by winning all 15 seats, will go for an early poll.
