Grenadians are going to the polls. On Saturday, 14 May 2022, Prime Minister and leader of the New National Party (NNP), Dr Keith Mitchell, announced that the next general elections would be held on 23 June 2022. The Prime Minister’s eagerly anticipated statement was made during a New National Party campaign rally in Telescope, St. Andrews.

Advising the audience that their vote will be a “signed cheque on their destiny”, Dr Mitchell invited the NNP candidates to stand further stating that police officers will go to the polls on Monday 20 June, with the public following a few days later.

The weekend’s announcement resulted in long queues on Monday 16 May at the electoral offices located in various constituencies as people registered to vote as early as possible. Subsequently, the writs for election were issued on Tuesday 17 May and published on Wednesday 18 May.

The official presentation of the political parties and independent candidates will take place on Nomination Day, Wednesday 1 June.

Currently, adverts for prospective representatives or political colours are on display in many communities. As the election gets nearer, the political parties and their candidates are expected to intensify campaigning.
