Voting in St. Kitts-Nevis

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, Feb 16, CMC – Voters in this twin island Federation are casting ballots to elect a new government with Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas urging them to ensure that his 20-year-old administration is returned to power for another five year-term.

 Douglas, 62, is seeking to become the first head of government in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to win five consecutive elections and leads his St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) into a tough battle against a combined opposition group, Team Unity that is equally confident of denying him the opportunity of re-writing the history books of the country.

Commentators in St. Kitts did not think the Privy Council’s decision which went against Prime Minister Douglas’ efforts to have the elections with new electoral boundaries, would significantly impact the voting today.
