Grenada: Country and Foreign Investment
Grenada has a constitutional monarchy with a Westminster-style parliament. The Queen is the Head of State, represented by a governor-general.
Following legislative elections, the leader of the majority party or the leader of the majority coalition is usually appointed prime minister by the governor general. The bi-cameral Parliament consists of the Senate (a 13-member body, 10 appointed by the government and three by the leader of the opposition) and the House of Representatives (15 seats; members are elected by popular vote to serve five-year terms).
The administration of the islands of the Grenadines group is divided between Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada.
Elections were last held on February 19, 2013, and resulted in a victory for the New National Party, led by Keith Mitchell, who became Prime Minister.
