Grenada PM to address nationals in New York
Published on March 7, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

By Michael Bascombe

BROOKLYN, USA -- Prime minister of Grenada, Dr Keith Mitchell, will meet with Grenadian and Caribbean nationals at a town hall meeting in Brooklyn, New York, on Saturday.

Officials confirmed on Tuesday that Mitchell, who is in New York on personal business, will use the opportunity to speak to nationals in a town hall meeting at Brooklyn College.

Mitchell was returned as prime minister following a convincing victory in the February 19 general election, at which his New National Party (NNP) secured all 15 parliamentary seats.

The meeting will begin with some cultural presentations followed by the town hall meeting where the Grenadian leader will update on the recent announcement of his Cabinet, immediate plans of his administration as well as the involvement of Grenadians in the Diaspora in national development.

The organisers have also extended an invitation to other Caribbean nationals to attend the town hall meeting, as Mitchell will speak on issues of regional importance.

Mitchell is the only regional leader to make a clean sweep in parliamentary elections on two occasions. Under his leadership, the NNP won all 15 seats in the election held in January 1999 and repeated the feat in the February 2013 general election.

Sir James Mitchell of St Vincent and the Grenadines was the only other Caribbean politician to score a resounding victory in the parliamentary elections of June 1998.
