Grenada holds early parliamentary elections -
Tillman Thomas
Wikipedia-White House
The Caribbean island of Grenada is set to hold parliamentary elections after the parliament was dissolved on January 9. The announcement was made by the island's Prime Minister Tillman Thomas on January 13.

The election was postponed to allow a new voter registration system to be put in place after concerns had arisen over allegedly missing names from the country’s voter list, the premier explained.


There are roughly 55,000 registered voters on the island of about 110,000 people.


In September, Grenada's governor general suspended a parliamentary session allowing Thomas to avoid debate on a no-confidence motion filed by a political ally. The New National Party (NNP), the opposition party, sought to bring an end to Thomas' government, claiming he showed poor leadership and brought political and economic uncertainties to the country.


The new election will see Thomas' National Democratic Congress running against the NNP led by former Prime Minister Keith Mitchell.
