The next General Election is due in 2020
In the 2015 General Election, the People’s Action Movement won 4 seats, more than any other party in the Federation. Recent polls have suggested that the PAM will likely increase their hall to 5 as Ambassador Powell himself has been enjoying favourable polling results in the Central Basseterre seat. Coalition partners CCM and PLP are also expected to pick up seats with CCM on track for a clean sweep on Nevis and the PLP Candidate Senator Akilah Byron-Nisbet polling exceptionally well in Const #3.
Currently the St. Kitts and Nevis National Assembly is made up of the PAM which holds 4 seats, the SKNLP, 3 seats, the CCM, two seats; the NRP and the PLP, 1 seat each.
The historic Dr. Hon. Timothy Harris led Team Unity tri–party coalition is made up of the PLP, CCM and PAM.
