Grenada Prime Minister Keith Mitchell has predicted that his party will keep all 15 seats they won in 2013 when he calls the general election.

The New National Party leader, who has twice led his party to clean sweeps of every parliamentary constituency, was speaking in St Andrew.

Rumours are rife that the general election will be called this year. It is legally due in 2018 at the latest.

Mitchell said the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) “will have to work to earn” any of the seats.

He said that the NNP has being governing the country “very well” without official opposition, so “the NNP is going for all the seats [again].

“We go play very greedy,” he added.

Meanwhile the NDC, which launched its election campaign, has expressed concern over funding in their push for power.

Chairman Vincent Robert said: “We invite Grenadians to support our party by assisting us with funds. We are way below the required amount and it’s a wonderful opportunity to invite all Grenadians who will like to see a change, who will like to see an improvement in the economic situation.
