Ruling party launches manifesto

ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada, Mar 2, CMC – The ruling New National Party (NNP) Friday launched its manifesto for the March 13 general election outline plans it said would transform the island to become the economic power house of the region.

“I am confident that we have the most solid and comprehensive plan for growth,” NNP leader and Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell told the launch attended by members of the business community, trade union movement and supporters.

NNP manifesto“The NNP’s vision and plan for social and economic development will continue to deliver positive results in every sector whilst protecting our heritage and values,” the NNP said in the 52 page document, titled “Keep Moving”.

It notes that the party if re-elected to government would encourage dialogue with all social partners as “key contributors in our developmental process”.

The NNP said that it would continue to build the economy so that “job creating economic growth and sustainable development will be guaranteed, investor confidence will be continuously encouraged” and that “every child will have an opportunity to have quality primary, secondary and tertiary education that is relevant”.

Mitchell told the ceremony that the NNP, which won all 15 seats in the 2013 general election, said “we have delivered on jobs and economic growth, and we have delivered on hope.

“We have kept the core of all of our promises that have brought us back from the brink of economic catastrophe. Grenada is back. And that is why our slogan this cycle is — Keep Moving. That is the basis of the vision we now share. One of growth; and one of progress,” he said.

Mitchell said that a modern society will have to enhance its health care services and make good healthcare, affordable and accessible, saying “that is the idea behind the national health insurance.

“A modern society must make sure the people who contribute to its development, must be cared for when they retire. And that’s why, as difficult as it is, the resumption of pensions, is not just an economic responsibility – but one of the moral responsibilities of our time,” Mitchell said announcing that a housing revolution “is on its way”.

“In the coming few years alone, we will build nearly 1,000 new units spread all over the country – directly affecting more than an estimated 3,000 people.”
