The Opposition New Democratic Party held its annual Christmas carolling competition at its headquarters in Kingstown on Friday, with some of the participating groups using the opportunity to take jabs at the government.

Eight groups, representing seven constituencies and the party’s youth arm, Young Democrats, participated in the competition, which was rounded off with a mini-fete after the event.

Each group sang two songs.

East Kingstown, the constituency that Opposition Leader Arnhim Eustace represents, retained the title.

They were aided in their performance by music from several members of the popular band, Touch, which includes NDP activist Bryan Alexander.

East Kingstown came in ahead of Marriaqua, while Young Democrats, was third.

Marriaqua also won the best traditional song, while East Kingstown took the title for the best Contemporary Song.

The others groups in the competition was Central Kingstown, South Windward, North Windward, South Central Windward and West St. George.
