Grenada's ruling NDC boots key officials
2012-09-30 18:13:19 | (0 Comments)
Seven members of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), including the general secretary Peter David and trade unionist Chester Humphrey have been expelled from the party.
The other members who have been banned include former cabinet ministers Joseph Gilbert, Karl Hood, Arley Gill, Glynnis Roberts and disciplinary committee member Siddiqui Sylvester.
Supporters voted overwhelmingly to expel the members at today’s annual convention of the NDC in the eastern parish of St Andrew’s.
David, the former tourism minister, Hood, the former foreign affairs minister and ex environment minister Roberts resigned from the cabinet in recent months citing differences with the four and a half year old administration of Prime Minister Tillman Thomas.
Prime Minister Thomas recently ordered the proroguing of parliament in an effort to avoid debate on a motion of no confidence against his administration filed by Hood.
