The Governor-General is the representative of the Monarch in Grenada and exercises most of the powers of the Monarch. The Governor-General is appointed for an indefinite term, serving at the pleasure of the Monarch. After the passage of the Statute of Westminster 1931, the Governor-General is appointed solely on the advice of the Cabinet of Grenada without the involvement of the British government. In the event of a vacancy the Chief Justice served as Officer Administering the Government.
