  • Granada está gobernada por un sistema parlamentario basado en el modelo británico. Tiene un gobernador general, representante del monarca británico (al pertenecer el país a la Commonwealth), un primer ministro, nombrado por el gobernador, aunque de facto es el líder del partido mayoritario, y un parlamento bicameral con una Cámara de Representantes, que cuenta con 15 escaños, electos por medio de elecciones y un Senado, de tan solo 13 miembros, nombrado por el gobierno y la oposición. Los ciudadanos de Granada disfrutan de un amplio rango de derechos civiles y políticos asegurados por la constitución. La constitución de Granada da a los ciudadanos el derecho de poder cambiar su gobierno de una forma pacífica. Los ciudadanos ejercen este derecho en elecciones periódicas, libres y justas albergadas en el formato del sufragio universal. Granada tiene dos partidos políticos principales, ambos moderados: el New National Party (conservador) y el National Democratic Congress (liberal). Otros partidos menores son el partido de centro-izquierda "Maurice Bishop Patriotic Movement" (MBPM, organizado por supervivientes pro-Bishop del golpe de Estado anti-Bishop de octubre de 1983) y el populista GULP del ex primer ministro Gairy. En las elecciones parlamentarias de noviembre de 2003, el gobierno del NNP, liderado por el primer ministro Keith Mitchell fue reelegido por tan solo un escaño de diferencia. La seguridad de Granada está a cargo de los 650 miembros de la "Royal Grenada Police Force" (RGPF) (en español: Fuerza de policía real de Granada"), la cual tiene entre sus miembros a una fuerza paramilitar de 80 miembros y 30 miembros de la guardia costera. El ejército de los Estados Unidos y la guardia costera del mismo país entrena y provee de material a ambos.
  • The politics of Grenada takes place in a framework of a parliamentary representative democracy, whereby the prime minister is the head of government. Grenada is an independent Commonwealth realm. It is governed under a multi-party parliamentary system whose political and legal traditions closely follow those of the United Kingdom; it has a prime minister and a cabinet, and a bicameral Parliament with an elected House of Representatives and an appointed Senate. Executive power is exercised by the government. Legislative power is vested in both the government and parliament. Constitutional safeguards include freedom of speech, press, worship, motion, and association. Grenada is a member of the eastern Caribbean court system. The Judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature. Jurisprudence is based on English common law. Citizens enjoy a wide range of civil and political rights guaranteed by the constitution. Grenada's constitution provides citizens with the right to change their government peacefully. Citizens exercise this right through periodic, free, and fair elections held on the basis of universal suffrage. Grenada has two significant political parties, both moderate: the National Democratic Congress (liberal) and the New National Party (conservative). Minor parties include the up-and-coming , which is led by Kerry Velon Simmons – one of the youngest active political leaders, the left-of-center Maurice Bishop Patriotic Movement (MBPM, organized by the pro-Bishop survivors of the October 1983 anti-Bishop coup) and the populist GULP of former Prime Minister Eric Gairy. At the July 2008, election the NDC won a comfortable seven-seat majority over the government of former Prime Minister Keith Mitchell. New Prime Minister Tillman Thomas formed a government after narrowly losing by one seat to Mitchell's NNP in the November 2003 election. In elections held on February 19, 2013, Keith Mitchell's NNP swept all fifteen parliamentary seats. This historic victory was a repeat of the 1999 elections in which the NNP also swept all 15 seats. Prime Minister Mitchell has the distinction as being the only Caribbean politician to sweep all seats on two occasions. Constitutionally, this development means that there is no official opposition in Parliament. As such, Governor General Carlye Glean, who is the titular head of state, will appoint 5 Senators to the Upper House, who will serve as the de facto opposition. Security in Grenada is maintained by the 650 members of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF), which included an 80-member paramilitary special services unit (SSU) and a 30-member coast guard. The U.S. Army and the U.S. Coast Guard provide periodic training and material support for the SSU and the coast guard.
