Grenada's new Opposition leader, Dr. Keith Mitchell has promised to put the country's interest first and before that of his party as he begins the task of rebuilding following its humiliating 11-4 defeat in the July 8 general elections.

"My team will be fair and vigilant, be very tough when necessary", he told reporters at a ceremony held at the private residence of Governor General, Sir Daniel Williams last week Wednesday. Dr. Mitchell's New National Party (NNP) government lost power after thirteen years at the helm to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of new Prime Minister, Tillman Thomas.

In a rather solemn oath, Dr. Mitchell wished the new Grenadian leader all the best, adding that if the NDC government succeeds then the country succeeds. According to the ex-prime minister, he will always respect the face of the country and PM. Thomas is the face of the country and pledged to never oppose for opposition sake.

Dr. Mitchell took the oath of office to lead a four-member Parliamentary opposition which includes Roland Bhola, Elvin Nimrod and Dr. Clarice Modeste Curwen. Three opposition Senators also received their instruments of appointment during the ceremony - Kennedy Roberts, Dwight Horsford and Devon Rachae.

 

Roberts and Rachae were unsuccessful candidates in the poll having contested seats in St. George North-eas

t and St. David's respectively. Dr. Mitchell told the gathering that it was not an easy task to select the group of Senators but in the end he decided to focus on the party's future.

He said that he is satisfied that he has a talented team that can represent the country in the Senate. There were no females in the line-up, as well as anyone from the rural parishes of St. Andrew's and St. Patrick's.

 

Opposition Leader and Senators

Roberts who lost to new Finance Minister, Nazim Burke for the St George North East seat, said he will put his country first at all times while Rachae is promising to be the voice of the youth as he takes his place in the Senate.

Attorney-at-law, Dwight Horsford who did not seek office in the poll noted that the opposition in the Senate will be one that is productive.
The Senators will pledge their oath of allegiance at the first sitting of the Upper House expected sometime before month-end.
