Partner at a local media entity, Troy Christopher has been elected as the new Chairman of the National Democratic Party (NDP).
He was voted in as Chairman when the party held its internal elections last evening, February 6.
He replaces Louis Potter who has been party chairman for more than half-a-decade.
Christopher is the son of Fifth District Representative, Delores Christopher.
Meanwhile, Clinical Psychologist Dr Michael Turnbull has been elected as Deputy Chairman, BVI News understands. He is brother to government legislator, Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull.
The post of party President was not put to a vote during yesterday’s internal election. That means Premier Dr D Orlando Smith has retained the NDP presidency.
There have been no official announcements about when next the NDP will hold elections for party president.
