Former finance minister Anthony Boatswain made the call against the background of the recent decision by Standards & Poor's to reduce Grenada's foreign currency sovereign credit rating after the island missed payment on a bond due on September 15.
Boatswain said the party is again calling for the government to urgently reconvene parliament to allow for a debate on the state of the economy.
