Election win celebrated in spite of behavior of the supervisor of elections

According to the tally, Team Unity has won seven seats, specifically constituencies numbers 1, 4, 5, 7 and 8 on St. Kitts, and two on Nevis. The alliance contended the elections under their individual party colours, namely, the People’s Action Movement, the Concerned Citizen’s Movement and the People’s Labour Party.

Early this morning, about 3:00 a.m., in an unprecedented move, Supervisor of Elections Wingrove George called a halt to the announcing of the vote counts. An inside source said the supervisor is refusing to make the official disclosure of the win, and has removed the media from his office while claiming that there have been discrepancies.

At about 5:10 this morning, it is said Mr. George cited technical difficulties for halting the count.

Since then, the supervisor of elections was heard on Freedom FM speaking to a DJ.

“I am able to report we have had some preliminary results, but the results are being contested and challenged, and so it would not be fair to who is challenging the results for me to make a formal and official announcement on those results. However, we are going through the process we have to and then an official announcement would be made by the end of the day,” said George.

Meanwhile, the Labour Party, through its deputy chairman Nigel Carty conceded the elections to Team Unity’s member candidates and has called upon the supervisor of elections to make an official announcement, as he described it to be a “serious responsibility” of the supervisor.

The winning representatives are as follows:

Constituency #1       Ian ‘Patches’ Liburd

Constituency #4       Lindsay Grant

Constituency #5       Shawn Richards

Constituency #7       Dr. Timothy Harris

Constituency #8       Eugene Hamilton

Constituency #9       Mark Brantley

Constituency #10      Premier Vance Amory
