ST GEORGE’S, Grenada -- The prime minister of Grenada, Tillman Thomas, on Monday requested the governor-general, Sir Carlyle Glean, to prorogue Parliament. This action will bring an end to the fourth session of the eighth Parliament some six months earlier than its scheduled close.

A date for the commencement of the fifth session of the eighth Parliament will be announced at a later date, at which time the traditional throne speech is expected to be delivered by the governor-general.
This move by Thomas effectively prevents debate on a no-confidence motion filed last month by former Foreign Minister Karl Hood, who resigned in April.
A similar no-confidence motion can, however, be brought again, once a new session is opened.
