What’s Trending:Clean sweep in Grenada

The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending today in Barbados.

Two days before Barbadians head to the polls, their eyes were on neighbouring Grenada where elections were held yesterday.

Keith Mitchell, 65,  entered into the history of Caribbean politics when he led his New National Party (NNP) to a clean sweep of the 15 seats at stake in the  general election, becoming the first political leader to achieve the feat, having previously done so in 1999.

Our readers have been commenting on the outcome.

Marvin Alleyne: “This is scary, very scary. I wish the new government the very best. I hope all people of Grenada, have a voice in the affairs of their country.”

Sundiata World Traveller Browne: “Congratulations to Dr Mitchell. I hope he will use this power to improve the lives of the Grenadian people and hopefully not become arrogant with time. He has no excuses to deliver. Come good or step off.”

Raymond Jones: “Congrat to the newly elected government in Grenada. However, this can't be healthy for a democracy not to have any opposition in parliament.”

Stephen Fields: “This is major... this is not a landslide. After a landslide, some soil is still left, this is a land shift.”

Janice Simon: Congratulations to Dr.Mitchell on your Victory. Now it's time to do you country and your people well...”

A landslide victory for the NNP can not be a good thing for Grenada. They say a people get the kind of Government they deserve. A Democracy with out a opposition Party is a very dangerous thing. Let us wait and see the great miracle that Dr. Mitchell will perform to get Grenada out of it Bankrupt situation. I wish him and the people of Grenada well. May God for bid such in Barbados. I always want to see a opposition in Parliament in Barbados.
