NNP GOES INTO ELECTION MODE

NNP GOES INTO ELECTION MODE

The ruling New National Party has openly declared its hand to the electorate of the sister isles, that the next General Elections would be held way ahead of its constitutionally due February 2018 deadline.

On Sunday a specially chartered trip by the Osprey Shuttle arrived at the Hillsborough jetty with a large crowd of 191 supporters of the party.  The team, which included, Ashton Frame, Sheldon Scott, Simon Steill and Donald Matheson were met by Parliamentary Representative for the sister isles, Hon Elvin Nimrod and Senator Norland Cox. They then headed straight to the party’s headquarters on Victoria Street in Hillsborough.

The visitors, accompanied by several local activists of the party were then formed into groups before they went knocking on doors across the various communities while just over a dozen traveled to the sister isles of Petite Martinique selling the achievements of the party thus far while expounding on the proposed plans of the New National Party if reelected at the next General Elections.

Several buses took the campaigners throughout the constituency, stopping to hold discussions with persons at various business outlets.

Although some were very tight-lipped, Parliamentary Representative for the constituency, Hon Elvin Nimrod, said that this is a process, which the party has embarked upon to allow residents of each constituency to share their views on the performance of the representative in many ways and the performance of the government in general.

Asked whether it is the start of campaign for the soon to be expected elections, Hon Nimrod said, “from the day after one election, the campaign begins for the other”.

Although tight lipped, some of the top brass from the mainland said that the information gathered would now be accessed by an independent team, which will then release their findings.
