Grenada PM avoiding wrath of parliament, says Wickham

Political scientist and Pollster, Peter Wickham, thinks it is unfortunate that Grenada’s Prime Minister, Tillman Thomas, has sought a prorogation of parliament at this time.

And he thinks that Thomas has taken this step to avoid incurring the wrath of parliament. Wickham voiced these concerns earlier today during an interview with Barbados TODAY.

The political scientist explained: “Many Caribbean constitutions provide for parliament to be ‘prorogued’ which is essentially a holiday or break from scheduled meetings; however, a prorogued should normally be associated with a break in the government’s legislative session or a change in policy direction that requires a new throne speech.
