Former legislator Myron Walwyn has resigned as Chairman of the National Democratic Party (NDP).
The NDP confirmed the resignation in a media release on Tuesday, May 21.
The release said Walwyn “tendered his resignation as chairman of the party with immediate effect” on that same date.
“In his letter, the outgoing chairman thanked the party for entrusting its leadership to him and for the overwhelming support he received during his tenure. He also pledged his continued support to the party. He went on to thank those who have served as chairman before him and the members who have laboured faithfully with the party over the past 20 years,” the NDP release added.
Walwyn’s resignation follows his defeat at the polls during the February 2019 resignation where he ran for re-election as a Territorial At-Large representative.
Of the 16 candidates who contested for one of the four available At-Large seats, Walwyn earned the fifth highest number of votes immediately behind the VIP legislators Sharie de Castro, Shereen Flax-Charles, Carvin Malone, and Neville Smith.
