There is no denying that with Covid-19, we are faced with a great challenge. A challenge that changes as the virus mutates. This unprecedented crisis needs a genuinely national response. The NDC has always supported and participated in the fight against Covid-19, because we believe that this national crisis requires input from all our people.
The Party Leader and members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are saddened by the events that unfolded on Thursday, when the Honorable Dr. Ralph E. Gonsalves, Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines was physically assaulted and wounded by protesters. We condemn this act of violence and call for the perpetrator(s) of this crime to be brought to justice.
The NDC joins with fellow Grenadians and people around the world in saluting and celebrating Kirani James on his extraordinary achievement of winning a bronze medal, his third Olympic medal in as many games in the 400 meters. Kirani is the only person in the history of the Olympics to achieve a medal hattrick in the 400 meters.
Fellow Grenadians, I address you today as the Acting Political Leader of the National Democratic Congress, your patriotic and conscientious guardian of our heritage, our values, our culture and our aspirations for a better Grenada to be enjoyed by everyone.
The Leader of the National Democratic Congress, Adrian Thomas, extends warmest congratulations to the leadership and members of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) on a decisive victory in the just-concluded general elections in St. Lucia.
