Though speculations are high, within and without the party itself, it will not be until Sunday 30th September, one week after, that officially the results will be made known to the public, though of course unofficially there will be knowledge of the victor shortly after the poll this Sunday.
The two deputy leaders of the party, Shawn Richards and Eugene Hamilton, both current members of parliament, are now in the closing stages of their campaign to succeed Grant who announced his resignation on Tuesday 17th July, 2012, during a press conference at the Ocean Terrance Inn, Basseterre.
Sunday’s poll will be followed by a special party convention on Sunday 30thSeptember, where the leader will be ratified and formerly announced.
Many political pundits believe that if PAM carefully handles this transition of leadership and the election to come, the party could improve its chances of unseating the incumbent Labour Party when General Elections are called in 2015, or before.
Outgoing leader, Lindsay Grant has already made it known that he will support which ever candidate emerges as the new head of the party. Former PAM leader and first Prime Minister of the country, Dr. Sir Kennedy Simmonds has also declared publicly, his intention to support and work with Hamilton or Richards once the elections are over.
