“NOMINATION DAY” is (today) Tuesday, February 25th, 2020 here on Nevis

 That’s Supervisor of Elections, Mr. Elvin Bailey.

 

He was speaking about the fact that Nomination Day is (today) Tuesday, February 25th, 2020.

 

The candidates vying for the Constituency #5, St. Thomas’ Parish seat here on Nevis, are Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM’s) Mr. Keith Scarborough and Nevis Reformation Party (NRP’s), Mrs. Cleone Stapleton-Simmonds.

 

The By-Election is slated for Thursday, March 5th, 2020.

 

A By-Election is an election held in a single political constituency to fill a vacancy.

 

This was triggered by Mr. Joseph Parry’s resignation from the Nevis Island Assembly in (December 2019), who was the lone member of the Opposition.

 

As a result, according to SKN’s constitution, “a By-Election shall be held; to fill the vacancy within ninety days of the occurrence of the vacancy.”
