GRENADA – Grenadians to vote for a new government on March 13

Grenada’s prime minister Dr Keith Mitchell Sunday night announced that he will ask the Governor General to dissolve Parliament on Monday, January 29, paving the way for a general election on Tuesday, March 13.

Addressing party supporters at a rally in the capital, St George’s,  Mitchell said Nomination Day will be on Tuesday, February 20.

Election writs will be issued on Tuesday.

In the 2013 general election, Mitchell’s New National Party (NNP) won all 15 seats at stake defeating the then National Democratic Congress (NDC) government of former prime minister Tillman Thomas.

This will be the second time that a general election will be held on March 13. On the first occasion in 1990, the NDC won seven seats and the Grenada United labour Party (GULP) four seats. The NNP had won two seats, the same as the National Party (NP).

    @luther thorne: I always wondered what type of ‘hunger strike’ you were on, but now I get the drift. You’re hunger for the elections. So Stuart has forced you on ‘hunger strike’, becarefull mate, you know how tactical the PM is. The last election should have taught you that he’s a capable tactician.

    So while you may be plotting his political deselection, he may be plotting you political death from your hunger strike.

    @Saga Boy/Darson; Calling the election now or later will bring the same results so playing it slow they still have to go. This reminds of a man having his last meal before execution and asked for a fruit, when told that they were out of season, he said that he could wait.

    There really should be massive debate and discussion to force the calling of elections. The Politicians forget that they are the Servants of the People.
