With the general elections scheduled to be held in Grenada on 23 June, the incumbent Prime Minister Keith Mitchell who called the snap election, has been hitting the campaign trail as he seeks a sixth term.
According to Dr Mitchell, his News National Party – NNP, is still the best political party to run the county.
“We have earned another term to complete the empowerment agenda that we are talking about,” he told supporters. “And having been in office, we understand that we would not have gotten everything right. We said and admit we have made mistakes and we are proud to admit it and move away from repeating it. There are some fair criticism out there about some of the thing we have done, we could have done better. Truth to be told, we shall never be satisfied for all and for the reasons we have articulated the New National Party remains, Grenada’s best bet at this time.”
He said the island has a cadre of young and experienced leaders which he is proud of.
The NNP’s boast that it will win yet another national poll, is being challenged by the NDP – the National Democratic Party.
The 44-year-old NDP leader, Dixon Mitchell who is hoping to win the St David Seat, is seeking to be Grenada’s next Prime Minister in the June 23rd election.
Meanwhile, St Kitts and Nevis is awaiting the announcement of the Election Day but some have already on the campaign trail.
