Barbados’ prime minister is slated to be one of two feature speakers at the new national party’s convention on Sunday.

The other is former island scholar Akima Paul lambert a top lawyer in the United Kingdom.

Having called general elections in her home country eighteen months earlier than it was constitutionally due, could Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley’s presence in Grenada this weekend, be an indication that the island can look forward to an early call to the polls, or is it that the party is showing their level of preparedness or just gauging the political temperature?

General Secretary of the ruling New National Party, Roland Bhola was questioned.

Prime Minister Mottley he says will not delve into party politics but rather speak from a Caribbean standpoint; challenges pertaining to the pandemic, the role Grenada has played as a territory in managing such and best practices that can be adopted.

Meanwhile, speculations are rife that Akima Paul Lambert a top lawyer in the UK has been contacted by factions of the NNP to be a candidate for the upcoming general elections.

Mrs. Paul Lambert would be the first feature speaker to address mainly the young people he says, sharing her experiences, challenges, and successes.

This year the convention will be held semi-virtually meaning that there would not be the usual mass gathering in one location.

General Secretary Roland Bhola explains the structure of this years’ convention.

NNP’s Convention on Sunday will be held under the theme “NNP: Tried, Trusted and Delivering”.
