ST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC) – Opposition Leader Keith Mitchell Tuesday said he is confident that his New National Party (NNP) will most probably win all 15 seats in the general election.
Mitchell told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) that figures so tabulated by the party show that it has already secured 11 seats and is leading in the other four.
“It is clear that we have won the election, it is very likely we will win all the seats,” he told CMC.
Political scientist and pollster Peter Wickham, appearing on television analysing the elections, said that it would be “phenomenal achievement” if the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) of Prime Minister Tillman Thomas would be able to retain the government it won in the 2008 election by an 11-4 margin.
Wickham said that the results of the seats contested by Thomas and his finance minister Nazim Burke would give an indication as to how many seats the NNP would be able to win in the election.
