Maurice Bishop Patriotic Movement (MBPM)

The Maurice Bishop Patriotic Movement (PLM) was a socialist political party in Grenada.

The MBPM was created after the Revolution by George Louison and Kendrick Radix, supporters of slain Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and represented the left of the political spectrum in 1984.

Despite the popularity of the revolution with many Grenadians, the MBPM was a marginal force in the island's politics. The MBPM participated in the 1984, 1990, 1995, and 1999 elections, but did not win any seats.

 In the 1984 elections it received only 5% of the vote and failed to win a seat. In the 1990 elections its vote share dropped to 2.4%, falling to 1.6% in 1995 and 0.6% in 1999.

In 2002, The party's last leader, Terrence Marryshow, merged the MBPM with another left-wing party, the People's Labour Movement.
