NDP not really the political party for SVG advancement

EDITOR: Please permit a space in your column to express my views about the New Democratic Party (NDP). I must admit that the NDP is not really the political party for the future advancement of St Vincent and the Grenadines and my simple reasons for indicating this particular statement is really because of the numerous setbacks the country really encountered during their administration years ago.{{more}}

The educational standard in the country was at an all-time low and the mainland was basically ignored, because more attention was specifically focused on the development of the Grenadines. The Unity Labour Party administration actually declined from really undertaking such an idea of focusing on one section of the country, but instead gradually focused on the entire country for development. The last election result actually became a real nightmare for the Unity Labour Party, after winning the election quite fairly. The New Democratic Party actually filed a petition in court claiming the election was conducted unfairly.

The former Prime Minister, Mr James Mitchell, was recently quoted as saying that the current leader of the New Democratic Party has basically gone through the windows already, and he must go home as a sincerely retired politician with the good possibility of sharing a glass of wine with him someday when visiting Bequia.

We, as law-abiding citizens of St Vincent and the Grenadines, and social supporters of the present government, definitely agree with the former Prime Minister.
