The Grenada Movement (TGM) at less than three months into its existence as a political party, has the distinction of being the youngest entity on the Grenadian political landscape. As an organisation, we have taken and will continue to take every step in our development carefully and deliberately, with the intention of building a party that can stand up to scrutiny and the test of time. It is indeed fair and accurate to say that we are undergoing a transition, having first launched as a non-governmental organisation (NGO), before our membership voted to become a political party.
As an institution committed to the ideals of democracy, we recognise that we will not all share the same viewpoints, at all times; and not everyone who begins a journey necessarily completes it. TGM respects the right of any individual to associate and/or disassociate, but will not subscribe to public mud-slinging and the airing of internal party disagreements. This is not our DNA.
The transition of TGM into a political party, is an on-going process, and one which is being managed in accordance with our party’s Constitution, by the Interim Management Committee (IMC). The IMC manages the day-to-day affairs of the party, the building out of constituency groups, and our preparations to hold our first Convention, when the leadership of the party will be elected. This is a painstaking process that calls for prudence at every step of the journey if we are to build on a solid foundation.
TGM is aware of certain claims allegedly attributed to current or former members of our party, and wishes to state the following, for the avoidance of doubt:
- There has never been any confrontation of any sort at any meeting of TGM, whether at a meeting of the Founders or a General Meeting.
- At no time has there been any discussion of or suggestion raised at any meeting of TGM pertaining to secret meetings between Dr. Patrick Antoine and Prime Minister Keith Mitchell.
- There have never been any secret meetings, or meetings at all between Dr. Patrick Antoine and Prime Minister Keith Mitchell since Dr. Antoine’s departure from the Government of Grenada
TGM remains committed to the advancement of its agenda for Grenada: empowering each and every son and daughter to achieve their fullest potential and we are prepared to build lasting institutional structures to being about the change.
