Good Old Democratic Party (GOD)

The Good Old Democratic Party (GOD), also known as Good Old Democracy, is a minor political party in Grenada.

The GOD political party was started around 1978 by Justin Francis Mc Burnie who was at the time working as Clerical Officer in the office of the late Sir Eric Matthew Gairy. At that time, it was noted that politicians believed more in themselves and not the almighty God. Mc Burnie believed that the seat of power belonged to God and not man. He became aware that having won elections politician became selfish and forgot the promises made to uplift the standards of living of the people. God gave me a mission to remove the plight of the poor and remove Godlessness, immorality and corruption. The ‘poor man’ his family and of course children must have a stake in the wealth and prosperity of the nation.

GOD  first contested national elections in 1990, when it received only six votes for its one candidate and failed to win a seat. In the 1995 elections it received 16 votes (three candidates) and again failed to win a seat. In 1999 it fielded three candidates, but received only twelve votes, reduced to ten (two candidates) in 2003 and just three (one candidate) in 2008. This total rose to 14 (two candidates) in 2013.
