Fledgling NDP Loses Key Members To PLP

TEN members of the executive council of the National Development Party, including party leader Renward Wells, have left the fledgling party and joined the Opposition Progressive Liberal Party.

Mr Wells claimed that the former NDP members were not promised any post or nomination in the next general election by the PLP’s leadership in exchange for their membership.

The parting members of the NDP said it is Mr Christie’s political philosophy and the change in the political landscape over the last month – presumably the emergence of newly formed Democratic National Alliance – that spurred them to cross party lines.
