Team Unity returned to office in St Kitts-Nevis for another term
The people of St. Kitts and Nevis have voted to return the Team Unity administration of Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris to office.
Preliminary results for the Friday 5 June 2020 General Elections show the three-party Team Unity coalition winning six of the eight seats on St Kitts and all three seats on Nevis. The coalition had seven of the 11 seats in the last parliament.
Leader of the main opposition St Kitts and Nevis Labour Party Dr Denzil Douglas retained his seat.
A CARICOM Election Observation Mission was in St. Kitts and Nevis to monitor the elections.
The Mission, whose role included monitoring the voting process – the opening of the poll, the casting of votes, the closing of polls and the counting of ballots – issued a Preliminary Statement based on its observations and findings (see statement https://searchlight.vc/searchlight/press-release/2020/06/09/st-kitts-nevis-election-results-indicate-the-will-of-the-people-caricom-observer-mission/).
A Report on the General Elections will be subsequently prepared and submitted to the CARICOM Secretary-General.
The three-member Mission is headed by Gasper Jean Baptiste, Chief Elections Officer of Saint Lucia, who has served as a member of CARICOM Election Observation Missions to other CARICOM Member States. The other members of the Mission are: Arley Gill (National of Grenada); and Chester Arlington Humphrey (National of Grenada).
