NNP thanks Nimrod and Bhola as they step aside

The New National Party has applauded “the exceeding level of statesmanship shown by its Deputy Political Leader Elvin Nimrod and General Secretary Roland Bhola for having announced their intentions not stand for re-election in the upcoming general elections.

The ruling party said the decisions were made “within the context of refreshing the party’s leadership and the party has reluctantly, but respectfully, accepted the decision of these two senior members”. 

The NNP which is coming to the end of its fourth term in two stints declares that as it gets ready for the next general elections it is involved in building an even more solid base for future growth and expansion. 

As a consequence of the two senior members’ declaration, NNP says, the party has begun the process through its internal organizations and structures of exploring possible caretakers for Carriacou and Petite Martinique, and St Andrew’s North East.

“Our party is confident with its position as the most organized, most democratic and most solid political organization in the country, which is poised for a historic return to power when general elections are called within the next year.

“We are fortunate that Hon. Bhola has agreed to our request to become the National Campaign Manager for the upcoming elections. We are confident about his ability and passion to usher us to another victory”.

Nimrod and Bhola are set to continue as MP’s until the end of the term; and according to the party, will also remain as senior members of cabinet for the foreseeable future.

 “I am very grateful that the party has seen and accepted my vision of the need to transition to the next generation of Grenadian leaders, and I was determined to lead by example,” Hon. Nimrod said in a statement.

“Now I am very confident that I can now pass the baton, if not to an equally capable individual, perhaps to an even more capable individual,” Hon. Bhola said at a constituency meeting. 

“I think that we are in good hands and that there are many good prospects among us for candidacy. If I honestly did not think so, I would not have volunteered to step aside,” he declared.
