In March 2023 the Parliament of Grenada invited CPA UK to facilitate a Post-Election Seminar for the House of Representatives and the Senate, following Grenada’s General Election in June 2022. The Seminar was initially scheduled for September 2022, but was postponed following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
A CPA UK delegation of three MPs and a clerk travelled to Grenada to participate in this three-day programme, which covered a range of topics including the constituency role of an MP and the importance of committees and cross-party working. The delegation also joined an International Women’s Day celebration, engaged with the Youth Parliament and met with representatives from civil society.
Grenada’s 2022 General Election saw several new parliamentarians elected to Parliament and the election also reset the Parliament’s government-opposition dynamic, as there had been no opposition party in the House of Representatives in the 2018-2022 parliament.
As Grenada approached its fiftieth anniversary of independence in 2024, there was a sense in the Seminar that this was a time of opportunity for Grenada’s Parliament.
