ULP holds first National Council meeting since 2020

Last Thursday, the governing Unity Labour Party (ULP) in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) held its first National Council Meeting in almost two years at the Russell’s Auditorium at Stoney Ground.  The last National Council Meeting was held in August 2020.

The over 450 delegates from the 15 constituency branches who attended the meeting heard addresses from a number of speakers, primarily Chairman Edwin Snagg and Political Leader Dr Ralph Gonsalves.

Delegates requested clarification on a number of issues dealing with a wide range of topics, to which Political Leader and Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves answered. At one point, the political leader allowed delegates to view the approved plans for the construction of the new Parliament building.

Party Chairman Edwin Snagg addressed a number of issues on the operations of the party, and the responsibility of delegates to their constituencies and the party as a whole.

The next major event of the Unity Labour Party is expected to take place in July when the party will hold its annual convention of delegates. Many are expecting the election of a deputy political leader to be on the agenda for that day.
