NDP imposes more deadlines on members

The latest string of deadlines to be imposed by the NDP comes on the heels of a directive by recently elected NDP Chairman, Honourable Myron V. Walywn (AL), who had given his party members up to August 12, 2018, to declare allegiance to him and to pronounce on whether they will go into elections with him as Leader. Photo: VINO/File

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The National Democratic Party's (NDP) Executive Committee, has set some additional deadlines on its membership, this time for those interested in contesting the upcoming General Elections.

This, according to an internal party correspondence, seen by this publication, which states that, “the Executive Committee has set some deadlines in the party’s quest to confirm its District and Territorial Candidates to contest the upcoming General Elections.”

Membership Instructions

Accordingly, NDP membership has since been instructed that all District Association representatives, “meet with their respective committee members to suggest candidates for the District and also candidates for Territorial at large.”

These suggestions are to be forwarded to the secretary of the Executive Committee, according to the correspondence.

The newly imposed deadlines are as follows:

September 7, 2018: Deadline for Territorial Applications

September 8, 2018: Executive Committee to make selections

September 10, 2018: Territorial Nominees announced to Party members and delegates

September 14, 2018: Deadline for District Applications

September 15, 2018: Executive Committee to make selections

September 17, 2018: District Nominees announced to Party members and delegates

September 27, 2018: National Executive Meeting and Candidacy Election.

The latest string of deadlines to be imposed by the NDP comes on the heels of a directive by recently elected NDP Chairman, Honourable Myron V. Walywn (AL), who had given his party members up to August 12, 2018, to declare allegiance to him and to pronounce on whether they will go into elections with him as Leader.

    Why the declaration of parties and candidates at this time if elections are constitutionally due June 2019? Is the prorogue of the House of Assembly signaling a snap election?

    The Hon Walwyn (Atl), chairman elect/co-leader of the NDP, seems to have an inauspicious jump out of the blocks. The series of edicts for potential running mates should be troubling for the co-leader. These are internal issues that should have handled by the inner core of the party, not airing in the public. The edicts are not helpful. Is not it puzzling that a party that shellacked the opposition 11-2 just over 3 years have dropped so far? Clearly, how far it has dropped is a function of its less than stellar performance. The $7.2M give away to BVI Airways, $1M ESHS Wall, ~$40M cost overun on TPP project, slow as molasses after the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, refusing help from UK Navy ship, failure to put work in place to provide a reliable and quality water supply to residents, force feeding a TBLIA runway extension/terminal upgrade, failure to passed consumer protection legislation.........etc may have contributed to the slide.

        Exactly, the NDP did a lot for this Country. VIP left a lot of mess that the NDP had to and is cleaning up. VIP is now acting like there is no dust bunnies under their beds or in their closets. VIP is thirsty for the premier position. Hey, the only one that can fill and is qualified for the Premier position when Doc step down is Myron.

      The Co-Leader's quest for power at any cost has cost the NDP to slide. He was so hungry for power that he was blind to the damage that could be done to the party. And I tell you much damage has been done! Thing to tell and time will tell! I hope that he and his crew are happy with the results - a very damaged NDP!

    This is internal matters that snake supporters within the camp love to fuel VIP and their bullsh*t. Nothing is wrong with deadlines.

    This was not ran on no other newsite. Do you see VIP leaking their internal info? Election day can not come quick enough. I wish for a snap election. I hope Fraser wins (lol).

    I have said since the internal elections that they conspired to win the battle,now let me see them win the war.Clearly Hon Walwyn has trouble garnering support. When things are not done right,they turn back to haunt you.I have been a loyal supporter for years,but right now I am tired.I don’t as yet see who I would support,perhaps a mixture of persons from all parties.Time will tell God willing.
