Grenadians go to the polls on February 19

(Jamaica Gleaner) Grenadians will go to the polls in a General Election on February 19.

Prime Minister Tillman Thomas made the announcement on Sunday, as he addressed hundreds of supporters at a rally of the ruling National Democratic Congress.

The party will be seeking a second term while the Opposition New National Party, which was voted out of office in 2008, will be seeking to take back of the Government.

Last week Wednesday, the Prime Minister in an address to the nation advised the Governor General to dissolve Parliament, paving way for General Election.

There are approximately 55,000 registered voters on the list.
