Grenada Parliament dissolved

(Jamaica Gleaner) 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.

However, he has not given an election date.

In a broadcast to the country last night, Thomas said the delay in giving a date would allow Grenadians of voting age to register, as all voter registration has to cease immediately after an election date is announced.

However Thomas says he will announce the date shortly.

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

Prime Minister Thomas led his National Democratic Congress to an 11-4 victory over the New National Party in the 2008 general election.

Elections were constitutionally due in October.
