Mitchell died at the age of 90 in St Vincent and the Grenadines on Tuesday, November 23. He was the country’s premier from 1972-1974 and Prime Minister from 1984-2000.

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) said his death marks the end of an era in St Vincent and the Grenadines history, as he was the last surviving Parliamentarian from the time of his country’s independence in 1979”.

CARICOM Secretary-General Dr. Carla Barnett, in a message to Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, extended condolences to the Government and People of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and to Sir James’ family.
