The Team Unity coalition, comprising of three (3) political parties here in St. Kitts and Nevis namely: the CCM Party, the People’s Action Movement (PAM) and People’s Labour Party (PLP), won 9 out of the 11 seats in the June 5th General Election.
In the 2015 General Election, the coalition won 7 of those seats (PAM-4, CCM-2, PLP-1). In the recent Election, Team Unity increased in the number of seats (PAM-4, CCM-3, PLP-2).
