New National Party
Published 23rd January, 2013
The New National Party or NNP was founded in August 1984 as a merger of the Grenada National Party (GNP) and the National Democratic Party (NDP). The party describes itself as Centre-right and believes in Conservatism.
The first record of the NNP fighting an election is in 1990 when they won two seats, but five years later, in 1995, led by Keith Mitchell came to power winning eight of the 15 seats and in 1999 they took all 15 seats. The NNP and Mitchell went on to win the 2003 elections with eight of the 15 seats and in total held office for 13 years until their defeat in 2008.
The New National Party is a member of the Caribbean Democrat Union, a regional grouping of the International Democrat Union (IDU).
