Grenada’s ruling National Democratic Congress will be changing the date of its 2012 annual convention, the party announced Saturday.
The convention, which was originally scheduled for July 8, will now be held on a new date, which the party has not yet disclosed.
“The decision to schedule a new date for the convention was taken at a meting of the party’s executive on Thursday, May 18,” said Senator Arley Gill, public relations officer for the party. “The executive will soon decide on a new date for the convention, which is the most important general meeting of our party.”
The party has faced unrest of late, with the high-profile resignations of two cabinet members, Foreign Minister Karl Hood and Tourism Minister Peter David, in less than a month.
The rescheduling “allows the NDC to take care of some administrative and in-house matters to ensure that our operations as the governing party are enhanced and become more effective,” Gill said.
