NDP saddened by the passing of the GG

THE NEW Democratic Party has expressed sadness at the death of former Governor-Genaral, Sir Frederick.

In a release the party said: “We are sad to learn of the passing of former Governor General of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Sir Frederick Ballantyne,” who was this country’s longest serving Governor General, having served from 2002 to 2019, “when he resigned due to ill health”.

The party said that “as a medical doctor, businessman and then Governor General, he used his time, energy and skill for the benefit of our people and the development of the country. He was both servant and nation-builder.

We deeply appreciate his contribution to the nation and hope it will serve as an inspiration to others”.

Our sympathy and love are with his family, the release stated.
