In 1974 Grenada became independent in the “Commonwealth of the Nations”. Head of state is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II., although she does not reside at Grenada she has a governor in charge, the so-called Governor General and that is since November 2008 Mr. Carlyle Glean.

The Head of the Government is Prime Minister Mr. Tillman Thomas. 

There has been a coup several years after the independence. This coup was caused by Cubans who tried to introduce communism- but they failed. With the help of Uncle Sam and the islands in vicinity Grenada could implemented democracy and is untroubled till today. 

In fact, Grenada is seen as a one of the most stable and most secure countries in its region.
