The House of Assembly was dissolved on January 16 2015 after a Draft Proclamation on the Boundaries Realignment was tabled and passed.
With the realignment of the boundaries both parties have to put in the extra effort to double up on canvassing to swing the undecided voters in their camp. There are eight constituencies on St. Kitts and three on Nevis. During the last general election, held on Jan. 25, 2010, the Labour Party secured six seats on St Kitts and the Concerned Citizens Movement in Nevis secured two seats.
The heat is definitely on!!!!
