The NDP has been condemning the conduct and results of the December 9th General Election, which saw a fourth consecutive term for the Unity Labour Party and Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.
Party President Arnhim Eustace told a news conference days after the election that none of the elected NDP MP’s would go to parliament to be sworn in until questions surrounding the poll are resolved.
He said his side will not concede. However, on his party’s New Times programme on Nice Radio on Monday Mr. Eustace said he has changed his position following legal advice. The new parliamentary term opens at 4pm on December 29th.
Mr. Eustace maintained his party will continue to challenge the election results after the Christmas holiday. He added that his latest statement was made even as he was fully cognisant of those made previously.
