Kinda Mathurine Stewart is calling it a day on the frontline of politics.

She has resigned from the New National Party through which she rose to political stardom.

Mathurine Stewart, a lawyer by profession, is moving on from the political to the legal bench.

A source close to the GBN, informed our news desk that from February 1st Mrs. Kindra Mathurine-Stewart will assume the role of Magistrate.

Our News Desk understands that she parted ways with the New National Party last Friday.

In an exclusive interview with the GBN, the party’s Chairman, Oliver Joseph confirmed that Mrs. Mathurine Stewart resigned from the NNP.

He hinted that based on the nature of her new job, the former female MP for Carriacou and Petit Martinique cannot hold any political affiliation.

Mrs. Mathurine Stewart got involved in front line politics following the decision of former MP Elvin Nimrod not to contest the 2018 general elections.

She contested last June’s polls but lost against newcomer, Tevin Andrews.

Following the NNP’s defeat her name was submitted as the party’s nominee in the Upper House of Parliament.

However, she later issued a statement on her Facebook page, declining the nomination.

Political Leader Dr. the Rt. Hon. Keith Mitchell said in a statement from the party today that he has given her his blessings and believes that she will do well.

GBN reached out to Mrs. Mathurine Stewart  to garner a feedback on her tenure, which she promised to provide following other engagements today, however up until news time this did not materialized.

It remains unclear to which district she will be assigned.
