MATHURINE-STEWART APPOINTED

Kindra Mathurine-Stewart has been appointed as the sister isles’ representative on the National Executive of the New National Party, thus painting a clearer picture of whom the party may be leaning towards as a replacement for the Member of Parliament Elvin Nimrod, when he decides to bow out of front line politics.

Reports are that she was given a standing ovation when she was called upon to attend a recent high-powered meeting of the party where the first five caretakers were unveiled to the nation.

According to a source both the political leader and Hon Nimrod, have identified her as the candidate who may best fit the party’s interest at this time.  However, the source added that others are under consideration.

He pointed out that the party is serious about running a female for the first time in the twin isle constituency of Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Mathurine-Stewart is the wife of former senator Nigel Stewart, both attorneys at law.  

It is the public view that both are very close to Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell and Minister Nimrod.  Mathurine-Stewart was Carriacou and Petite Martinique’s representative on the National Referendum Committee and made several representations on behalf of the sister isles during the process. She is also the chairperson of the Festivals Board and under her guidance there has been a more professional and profitable operation of the various events.

The former Bishop’s College teacher’s name has been on the lips of many, including a few others who are also said to be under consideration to hold the reins, when the highly successful and still by far the most popular political figure on the sister isles, Nimrod, decides to call it a day.

There are also reports that following the high-powered executive meeting, there have been subsequent contacts made to Mrs Mathurine-Stewart by party stalwarts, who have been dropping hints that she may be the preferred choice of the party as the future caretaker, on her way to the candidacy for the twin isle constituency of Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

The party has listed several names as possible successors to Nimrod, with Mathurine-Stewart as the lone female.  Since Hon Nimrod won the Carriacou and Petite Martinique constituency back in 1999 he and the party have dominated local elections and seem stubbornly determined to ensure that the constituency stays in the house for several generations to come.
