As a parliamentary democracy, Grenada’s Prime Ministers – former, future and present, hold dual roles. She/He serves as both the Prime Minister of ALL Grenadians and as the Political Leader of his/her party. These roles are inherently intertwined and no Prime Minister can separate them.

Hence patriotic Grenadians of all political persuasions have always put country FIRST…!!


The Prime Minister’s attendance at the gala symbolises his dedication to bridging the divide and fostering unity among all Grenadians, regardless of their political affiliations.

This Gala aims to provide a platform for people of all backgrounds to come together and celebrate the shared values and aspirations that bind them as citizens of Grenada.

October 19, 2023, holds special significance as it is named Heroes Day. This day serves as both a memorial and a celebration of Grenadian Heroes who have made remarkable sacrifices and contributions to our nation.

At the Prime Minister’s “UK Diaspora” Gala, the United Kingdom will observe a solemn minute’s silence in honour of the memory of Maurice Bishop and all those Grenadians who lost their lives during the implosion of the People‚Äôs Revolution and the subsequent war of liberation.

The events surrounding the revolution and the war of liberation, led by the United States and supported by Caribbean forces, played a crucial role in shaping Grenada’s history. This minute of silence is a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by these heroes and a symbol of the nation’s commitment to unity, healing, and progress.
