Grenadians have elected a new government.

This as the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), led by 44-year-old Dickon Mitchell, comes out on top in today’s general elections, according to preliminary results released.

The NDC took 9 of the 15 seats with the remainder going to the New National Party (NNP) of Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell.

Several government ministers lost their seats in the election.
