Troy Christopher the new NDP chairman


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.

    It makes no difference who is Chairman of the ndp. If the President isn’t fixed then it makes no sense the rest of this noise making.

    If Christopher is honest then all will be well. We need people in charge who is not afraid of Myron and Pickering. Stay humble and be honest to the people.

  11. Clarity says:

    The new Chairman and Deputy Chairman were both ELECTED during a fair election held last night where over 90 persons voted in accordance with the party constitution. Nobody was ‘appointed’ to any post.

    Troy, congrats! Louis “Bouy” Potter, you had a good run so keep your head high; you won two elections (2011 and 2015). Change is envitable. Everything has a season and your season is up in regards to leading the NDP. It is time for millennials to get their wings; let them fly. There are other areas you can contribute in. Bon voyage olde boy!
