Former Leader of the National Democratic Congress and late Prime Minister, Sir Nicholas Brathwaite, once said that the Constituency of Carriacou and Petite Martinique must be viewed as a contest by itself and that winning it always feels like securing a country in itself.
And it seems as if the current NDC under the leadership of NazimBurke, is attaching the same level of significance the late Political Leader of the party attached to the twin isle constituency.
Last week Thursday and Friday, Mr. Burke together with the party’s caretaker for this constituency was busy making the rounds to the different polling divisions interacting with residents. On several of their stops, hey interacted with the people in games such as cards and dominoes while selling the NDC message for a “better and brighter tomorrow”.
The two along with other members of the party say that the exercise was extremely successful and that they were able to identify more people who are willing to champion the cause of the congress party.
They noted that some persons who in the past were rather reluctant to come forward, have been doing so in recent times, which speaks to the growing nature of the NDC’s base.
Not sure when the nation would be called to the polls, both Mr Burke and Mr Andrew, say that it’s a policy of the party to never lose touch with the people.
The mood they disclosed is of encouragement and they are pleased with the increasing level of embrace they have been receiving from the electorate of the sister isles with each passing day.
