Gearing up for election

ST. GEORGE’S — Prime Minister of Grenada, Tillman Thomas, has asked the country’s governor general to dissolve the parliament paving the way for elections to be held within 90 days.

But he has not given an election date but said he would do so shortly.

In a national broadcast this evening Thomas said the delay in declaring a date would allow Grenadians of voting age to register as all voter registration has to cease immediately after an election date is announced.

Several members of the government have either resigned or have been booted since the Parliament prorogued in July last year.

Thomas also said he delayed calling for dissolution of parliament earlier, to allow certain improvements to the country’s electoral machinery.

Elections are constitutionally due by October. (Gleaner)
