ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada, Sept 25  – Winston Frederick, the former deputy speaker of the Grenada parliament died last night at the General Hospital.
The cause of death was not disclosed. He was in his late 70s.
Frederick, who served as a legislator from 1990-95, resigned from the Grenada United Labour Party (GULP) which he said, was suffering “from a virus and as it is now the party can be considered dead”.
He was defeated in the 1995 general election by former sports minister  Adrian ‘Spaceman’ Mitchell, who contested the seat on behalf of the now ruling New National Party.
He migrated to the United States and returned to form the People’s United Labour Party (PULP) which he launched in 2012. Frederick contested the St. Patrick East seat against former prime minister Tillman Thomas in the February 2013 general election, receiving a mere 11 votes.
Winty, as he was popularly known, had promised voters that he would build a bridge linking the capital to the sister isle of Carriacou and that the owners of Disneyland had agreed to establish a park here.
