The Parliament of Grenada is composed of the monarch and two chambers: Senate and the House of Representatives.

House of Representatives[edit]

The House of Representatives has 16 members: 15 elected for a five-year term in single-seat constituencies, and a speaker.[1][2] The elections are by the first-past-the-post system. The New National Party currently holds every seat in the House of Representatives.

Senate[edit]

The Senate has 13 appointed members. 7 are appointed on the advice of the Prime Minister, 3 are appointed on advice of the Leader of the Opposition and 3 are appointed on advice of the Prime Minister "after he has consulted the organizations or interests which he considers the Senators should be selected to represent". Since the National Democratic Congress does not have any seats in the House of Representatives it is only represented in the Senate.[1]
