The Political Leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mrs. Franka Alexis Johnson Bernadine, the Executive Committee and indeed the entire membership of the Party, join in extending congratulations to the incumbent, Prime Minister Andrew Holness of Jamaica on securing another victory at the election polls yesterday, Thursday 3rd September.
This is a period of unprecedented crisis, when our people need hope and inspiring, positive leadership as we face an uncertain future. The National Address delivered by Dr. the Rt Hon. Keith Mitchell on August 17th, 2020 failed to do that. It was of the same old mold - business as usual. The address was uninspiring, lacked vision, and was completely out of touch with our reality. Most unsettling, it failed to bring hope and positivity to the people. Instead, it carried a chastising in tone.
The National Democratic Congress will like to join the United Nations and the world in celebrating International Youth Day. This year’s theme “Youth Engagement for Global Action” is pertinent for our current reality. Young people play a pivotal role in our communities and should be involved in the leadership process. In the last few years we’ve seen young people step up to the challenge around the world, individuals like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, U.S Representative, Malala Yousafzai, education activist and Greta Thunberg, climate change activist. These young women are just a few examples of the exemplary actions that young people are taking to help shape a better society for all of us.
On behalf of the National Executive Council and membership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and indeed the people of Grenada, I extend heartiest congratulations and best wishes to you, Dr. Keith Christopher Rowley, on your re-election as Prime Minister of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
The National Executive Council and the entire membership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) stand firmly in solidarity with our Public Relations Officer (PRO), Sister Claudette Joseph, named as the defendant in a defamation lawsuit brought by Prime Minister Mitchell on Thursday, July 30th, 2020.
Leader of the National Democratic Congress, Franka Bernardine extends warmest congratulations to the leadership and members of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/c) on their victory in the General Elections held on March 2nd, 2020 in Guyana.
