His Excellency Ambassador Ian Patches Liburd congratulated and welcomed a newly elected PAM East Basseterre Group Executive .

Vanessa Phipps led a team which comprised Kerine Archibald, Phyllis Farrel, Latisha Richards, Rodell Nicholls and Laurencia Isaac. While Karen Sadio led a team that included Oretha Fan Mack, Keeshaw Osbourne, Shontelle Wilkinson, Al-Wali Muhammed and Sharaz Cornelius.
At the end of what proved to be a very lengthy and boisterous campaign period the people of East Basseterre exercised their franchise .
