(The New Today) A female attorney-at-law has raised the prospects of Grenada not having a free and fair election at the next national poll widely expected some time this year.
Claudette Joseph expressed the view in light of the recent unprecedented move by Governor General, Dame Cecile La Grenade to sack eight of the 15 Registration Officers with general elections already in the air.
According to Joseph, if there is not a Parliamentary Elections Office that is not susceptible to interference then the country will end up in a situation where it may not be able to conduct free and fair election.
The female attorney noted that the job of a Registration Officer is a specialised area to ensure that the electorate are registered in the correct Polling Divisions, and that there is no double registration of individual voters.
Replacements have been found for the Registration Officers who were given marching orders by Dame Cecile.
