Prime Minister Tillman Thomas announced the date at a political rally Sunday night a week after the country’s parliament was dissolved. A few hundred partisans attended the gathering.
Thomas’ National Democratic Congress will be pitted against the opposition New National Party led by former Prime Minister Keith Mitchell, and the new National United Front, which launched late in 2012.
There are roughly 55,000 registered voters on the island of about 110,000 people.
In September, Grenada’s governor general suspended a parliamentary session allowing Thomas to avoid debate on a no-confidence motion filed by a political ally.
