'A new beginning for NMI Democrats'

Democratic Party of the Northern Mariana Islands Inc. board chair Daniel O. Quitugua said their convention last Saturday marks a new beginning for their group in their bid to revive their presence in the local political arena.

The local Democratic Party had already produced two governors—Carlos S. Camacho as the CNMI’s first elected chief executive in 1978 and Froilan Tenorio, who served from 1994 to 1998. Camacho’s lieutenant governor was Francisco C. Ada while Tenorio’s deputy was Jesus C. Borja.

The Democrats also produced the CNMI’s first female senator in Sen. Maria Frica T. Pangelinan, who topped the 2005 race for Saipan. She served one term in the 15th Commonwealth Legislature and chose not to run for re-election.

Quitugua told Saipan Tribune that he was happy with the outcome of their party’s convention. “I am elated. I’m extremely happy and proud that former central committee members were able to come together to this convention.”
