(Today) October 2nd 2020 is the date set by the court for official inspection of boxes coming out of St. Christopher One (East Basseterre) Constituency.
Last Friday, High Court Judge Justice Trevor Ward QC, ordered that the boxes coming out of the East Basseterre Constituency following the June 5th 2020 General Elections be re-opened and the rejected ballots be re-examined.
This comes following PAM’s (People’s Action Movement) Candidate for St. Christopher One, Mr. Ian “Patches” Liburd’s Election Petition.
In June, a few days after the election, Mr. Liburd expressed his dissatisfaction with the results for St. Christopher # 1 and said his “solicitors will proceed with the necessary high court action”, which has led so far, to the re-count order by Judge Ward.
In the General Elections, SKN Labour Party’s Candidate and now Representative of St. Christopher One, Dr. the Hon. Geoffrey Hanley, defeated Mr. Liburd.
