“Election Petition season is over”, Nevis’ Premier says

Premier of Nevis and Representative for Nevis #9 Constituency, the Hon. Mark Brantley. 


In June, (a few days after the June 5th General Election), the People’s Action Movement (PAM’s) Candidate for St. Christopher #1, Mr. Ian “Patches” Liburd expressed his dissatisfaction with the results for St. Christopher 1 and said at the time, his “solicitors will proceed with the necessary high court action”, which led to the Election Petition.


The Representative of St. Christopher One is Labour’s Dr. the Hon. Geoffrey Hanley. 


An Election Petition refers to the procedure for challenging the result of a Parliamentary Election.  Also, on Friday June 26th, the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) filed election petitions, challenging the results of the June 5th General Elections, in six of the eight seats in St. Kitts.


The SKNLP challenged the results in Constituencies 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8. At the General Elections, the Party secured 2 of the 11 seats.   


The Team Unity alliance made up of three (3) political parties here in St. Kitts and Nevis namely: the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) Party, the People’s Action Movement (PAM) and People’s Labour Party (PLP), won 9 seats (CCM-3, PLP-2, PAM-4).


The Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) was unable to secure a seat.
