Grenada's ruling NDC chairman thrown out of convention
2012-09-30 12:07:08 | (0 Comments)
Acting chairman of Grenada’s ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Pastor Stanford Simon, has been thrown out of today’s party convention in St Andrew’s.
NDC supporters voted overwhelmingly for Pastor Simon to be removed from the convention after executive member Vincent Roberts moved a motion calling for his expulsion.
The Caribbean Media Corporation says the highly anticipated NDC convention, which was postponed from July, begun with a tinge of controversy as Simon arrived to jeers from some party members.
Simon is believed to be a supporter of General Secretary Peter David, who is among a number of Government ministers who were fired or resigned amidst lingering infighting in the four-and-a-half-year old administration of Prime Minister Tillman Thomas.
