Grenada: As the date of the general elections approaches Grenada, Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell was among 41 individuals who were nominated as candidates to contest the general elections on June 23, 2022.

Dr Mitchell, the incumbent candidate for St. George Northwest, has been the parliamentary representative for that constituency since 1984.

 Prime Minister was accompanied by a large group of constituents as he journeyed to the Parliamentary Elections Office in Happy Hill on Wednesday.

After completing the nomination process, Dr Mitchell expressed profound appreciation for the outpouring of love and support. Prime Minister extended congratulations to all of the candidates who completed the nomination process on Wednesday.

Dr Mitchell also used the opportunity to encourage Grenadians to exercise their democratic right on June 23.

The current voters’ list has a tally of 87,794. However, that figure is subject to change as persons have until June 7 to file claims and objections, the outcome of which can affect the final list.

In 2018, there were 78,122 Grenadians registered to vote.

At the close of nomination, forty-one individuals were nominated as candidates for the General Elections of June 23, 2022, in Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. 

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New National Party (NNP) nominated fifteen candidates each. 

Grenada Renaissance Party (GRP0 have nominated three candidates for the elections. Independent Freedom Party nominated around three candidates. On the other hand, Grenada United Labour Party (GULP) nominated around four candidates, and there was one independent candidate. 

Further, the Parliamentary Elections Office (PEO) advises the public that an elector who does not replace his or her expired voter identification card cannot be denied his or her right to vote on Election Day.

The “right of a person to vote” speaks to ‘if on polling day, he is qualified and registered as an elector in that constituency, and his name appears on the current list to be used for that constituency’.

The presentation of the voter identification card is required to verify the identity of the individual who is voting. Therefore, electors are asked to present their voter identification cards before receiving a ballot.
