1954 Grenadian general election

General elections were held in Grenada on 20 September 1954.[1] Although independent candidates received the most votes, Eric Gairy's Grenada United Labour Party (the only political party in existence at the time) won six of the eight seats, as it had done in the 1951 elections.[2] At this time the Legislative Council had few powers. The role of head of government remained with the Administrator.
