ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada – The main opposition New National Party (NNP) is likely to win the February 19 general elections with more seats than it had before it was swept out of power in 2008, according to a new opinion poll published today.

The poll by the Barbados-based Caribbean Development Research Services Inc (CADRES) predicts that the NNP, which lost the 2008 election by an 11-4 margin, is benefitting from an 11 per cent swing away from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

According to the results of the poll more Grenadians are in favour of former prime minister and NNP leader Dr. Keith Mitchell heading a government than the incumbent Prime Minister Tillman Thomas.

The poll conducted between January 18-21 after Thomas announced the date for the general election, shows that “57 per cent of Grenadians would prefer Dr Keith Mitchell to be their Prime Minister, while 33 per cent would prefer Mr Tillman Thomas to remain as Prime Minister”.

“The major political finding of the survey is that there has been a decisive swing against the governing NDC which CADRES measured at 11 per cent. (CMC)
