THE Northern Mariana Islands Republican Party will meet to conduct a presidential preference caucus on Sunday, March 15, starting at 11 a.m. and not 5:30 p.m. as earlier announced.

The party president, James Ada, said the venue is still the Minachom Atdao Pavilion on Beach Road in Susupe.

He said the party will also elect a new set of officers — president, first vice president, second vice president, secretary, and treasurer.

In addition, he said, they will elect Republican National Committee members — a committeeman and a committeewoman as well as six delegates to the Republican National Convention, which will be held on Aug. 24-27 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The other current NMI Republican Party officers are Felicidad Ogumoro, first vice president; Vince Torres, second vice president; Glenna SP Reyes, secretary; and Rufin Inos, treasurer.

Ada is urging interested individuals who wish to run as GOP convention delegate to submit their intent to any of the current board members no later than March 10 by 4:30 p.m.

Led by Gov. Ralph DLG Torres, the NMI GOP was one of the early supporters of now Republican President Donald Trump in the 2016 elections.
