The New National Party has engaged the services of the distinguished and high profiled attorney, Mr. Ramesh Maharaj, Senior Counsel, of Trinidad and Tobago.
Mr Maharaj S.C. heads an experienced, regional legal team, including local Grenadian attorneys, that will provide legal oversight to the New National Party during the General Election in Grenada on Tuesday 19th February, 2013.
The strength and extent of this legal presence reflects the New National Party’s commitment to ensuring every possible measure is put in place to uphold the democratic rights of every eligible citizen in Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique for free and fair elections.
There will be strong legal support in each and every constituency. This formidable legal team will be available to the field agents deployed in each polling division on Election Day to ensure that the integrity of the voting process is preserved.
Extensive training has been conducted to ensure all polling and field agents are fully aware of their roles and responsibilities and are thoroughly prepared to carry out their duties on Election Day.
In addition, each polling agent has been equipped with an election day handbook outlining the do’s and don’t of the voting procedures in accordance to the law.
The New National Party, in recognition of its role and responsibility to the people of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, has taken these additional steps in the interest of ensuring that the will of the people is respected.
