Peter David In Position To Contest Town of St George Featured

Peter David In Position To Contest Town of St George

Senator, Peter David has been appointed the caretaker for the Town of St George – an area, which he served two terms as MP as a member of the National Democratic Congress.

The executive of the New National Party had previously announced that it would launch caretakers in five constituencies this month – the first in a series scheduled over the next few months.

“I am grateful for the confidence that has been shown in me by the General Executive of the NNP, and by the party supporters at large, in town. We have a lot of work to do together – and we will get down to ensuring that the seat stays in the column of the NNP,” David commented.

The former Foreign Minister noted that he has worked closely with MP Nikolas Steele in recent years “to unite all of our people.”

“We believe that the challenges we continue to face as a nation, despite the awe-inspiring successes, call for a sense of unity like we have never seen in our history. There are too many possibilities out there for anyone to govern a divided nation,” David said.

David had been strongly criticized as being instrumental in the demise of the former NDC administration. Shortly before the 2013 elections, he made public comments critical of the then Prime Minister Tillman Thomas and his administration, which ultimately led to a convention of the party taking the decision to expel him as a member. Incidentally, although he was the General Secretary of the NDC at the time he was not present at that convention. This led man y to believe he had already decided to sever ties with the party.

As an NDC member and candidate David was considered the most outspoken opponent and forceful critic of then Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell’s leadership.

Senator Pamela Moses, a political newcomer and the current Junior Minister of Sport is also among those named in the first batch.

Senator Moses has been appointed as the caretaker for St Patrick East.

Steele has been named the caretaker for St George South, Party Chairman Gregory Bowen is the caretaker for St George’s South East – an area he has repeatedly served as MP and the fifth caretaker announced is Hon Emmalin Pierre for St Andrew South East, where she is the current MP.
