The Grenada government is calling on Caricom countries to support Sir Ronald Sanders, the Antigua and Barbuda diplomat for the post of Commonwealth Secretary General.

The election will take place, in caucus, when Commonwealth Heads of Government meet in Malta from November 27th to 29th, 2015.

Caricom countries are yet to choose between Sir Ronald and the Dominica nominee, Baroness Patricia Scotland, a former attorney general in Britain.

Following their annual summit in Barbados earlier this year, Barbados Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, the present Caricom chairman, said the issue would have been dealt with at a meeting of the Caricom Bureau.

But in a statement, Mitchell, who is also the Chairman of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), said he welcomed the declaration by the new Trinidad and Tobago government of its support for the Guyana-born Antigua diplomat.
