Testing the political ground in S.V.G


EDITOR: It seems thatt the outcome of the December 7 elections will be very interesting. During my 25 years of examining the outcomes of General Elections, I have never failedin identifying before-hand the result of the party that finds its way ahead or behind in any election poll.{{more}}

This coming election is no exception. My success came about by sounding the ground within the perimeter of the city of Kingstown. In any election campaign it’s quite easy to know the political party that is ahead in S.V.G.

First, let’s examine the city of Kingstown carefully; it’s the only centralized commercial area in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. As a result, people from all 15 constituencies visit Kingstown every day to engage in commercial activities.

At election time, most of these people generally display in one way or the other their allegiance to that political party they are affiliated to. This kind of observation makes it very easy to analyze and interpret any political situation existing in St. Vincent and the Grenadines prior to Election Day.
