Grenadians are casting their ballots on today to elect a new government in a general election that Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell called ahead of the constitutional March 2023 deadline.
Dr. Mitchell's New National Party (NNP) is among five political parties and one independent candidate facing the 87,506 voters.
He is seeking a historic third consecutive term in office, having won the last two general elections by sweeping all the 15 seats in the Parliament of the tri-island state.
The main challenger will be the National Democratic Congress (UNC) that is being led for the first time by 44-year-old attorney Dickon Mitchell.
