With great optimism Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves told Unity Labour Party (ULP) supporters on Sunday the party will go the full five years in this term.

The ULP’s first term in office lasted four years and eight months but Dr. Gonsalves said that is not going to be the case this time around. {{more}}

He said Sunday, February 12, the Unity Labour Party National Convention was a convention for celebration, and used the opportunity to speak of the party’s achievements since 1994.

“At the first convention held here in ’98 I promised you we would have elections sooner rather than later,” said Dr. Gonsalves.

He then bragged of the party’s cutting short the term of the New Democratic Party (NDP) by nearly three years.

But he acknowledged his only regret is not getting “the political scalp” of Sir James Mitchell, former Prime Minister and founder of the NDP.
