Grenada General Election Results - 13 March 2018

Old Grenada Parliament Building

General elections were held in Grenada on 13 March 2018.

Electoral System

The 15 members of the House of Representatives were elected in single-member constituencies by first-past-the-post voting.There was no fixed election date in effect in Grenada at this time; hence, the choice of election date is the prerogative of the Prime Minister.

Background

Grenadians go to the polls on 13 March 2018. Grenada Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell made the announcement at a mass rally at the National Stadium Car Park on Sunday, 28 January 2018.  He advised Governor-General Dame Cécile La Grenade to dissolve Parliament effective 29 January 2018.   Writs will be issued on 30 January 2018.  Nomination Day will be Tuesday, 20 February 2018 and Polling Day will be Tuesday, 13 March 2018. Mitchell’s New National Party (NNP) will face off against the National Democratic Congress (NDC), this time led by Nazim Burke.  The NNP won a clean sweep of the 15 seats at stake in the 19 February 2013 General Election.  Approximately 88 per cent of 62,148 registered voters participated in the 2013 election on Grenada, Carriacou, and Petit Martinique.

Election Observers

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Organization of American States (OAS) deployed electoral observer missions to monitor the 2018 Election.

Results

The Keith Mitchell led New National Party (NNP) was re-elected for a second successive term with a landslide victory over the Nazim Burk led National Democratic Congress (NDC). The NNP won all of the 15 seats. This was the third time the NNP won all 15 seats, doing the same in 1999.
