NDC planning for General Council

The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is expected to hold its annual General Council session towards the end of next month.

A party official told THE NEW TODAY that the current management team in place is planning to select an appropriate venue for the attendance of delegates due to Social Distancing protocol as a result of Covid-19.

He said that it is possible that between 75 and 100 delegates might be brought into the session due to the decision of government to engage in crowd control measures to prevent the possible spread of the virus on the island.

It will be the first time that a major organ of Congress will be meeting following the decision a few weeks ago by its first female Political Leader, former Education Minister Franka Alexis-Bernardine to resign from the post on the grounds of health concerns.

The General Council will set the date for the annual convention of NDC at which a new political leader will be voted upon by delegates in attendance.

The party is currently led by Interim Political Leader, Adrian “Persuader” Thomas who is said to be interested in contesting the post of Political Leader.

Chairman of the Grenada Co-operative Nutmeg Association (GCNA), Leo Cato is believed to be getting the back of some key players in the party to put in a challenge for the top party post.
