Grenada Elections: Dr. Keith Mitchell’s NNP wins all 15 seats

NNP Wins all 15 seats in Grenada Elections

grenadaflag2ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada, 19 February 2013 (CMC) – Supporters of the main opposition New National Party (NNP) took to the streets in celebration here on Tuesday night after the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) conceded defeat in the general election.

The NNP, headed by former prime minister Dr. Keith Mitchell, has made a clean sweep of all the 15 seats, a repeat of the 1999 performance.

Prime Minister Tillman Thomas as well as his senior cabinet ministers were swept aside in the general election, four and a half years after their had won the polls by an 11-4 margin.  

NDC deputy chairman Kent Joseph appeared on television to concede defeat and congratulated the NNP for its victory. he said:

“The younger voters are the ones who played a factor in this election, apart from the economy and jobs,” he told reporters, adding “ it is not because of what we did not do well.  We did a very good job in the economy itself from what we had and what we met, but this is democracy so I am not perturbed. I have been through this already in 1999.”  [CMC]
