The Team Unity coalition, led by Dr. Timothy Harris, recorded a decisive nine-seat victory in the June 5 general election, as the majority of the electorate clearly voted for the stronger, safer future that, in their opinion, only the coalition could deliver for the people of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Harris, who was resoundingly returned by the people of Constituency #7, has thanked the people of that constituency in particular and the people of St. Kitts and Nevis in general, for once again reposing their trust in the tripartite coalition to the govern the affairs of the country, this time with an even greater mandate.

He noted that Friday’s electoral outcome is a clear indication that the policies and programs introduced over the past five years that have positively affected the lives of all citizens and residents and positioned the federation as the best managed small island state, resonated well with the majority of persons in St. Kitts and Nevis.

In its second term, the Team Unity coalition has pledged to continue to build on the progress made over the past five years by investing heavily in agricultural development, housing, improving the already strong relationship between the Federal entity and the Nevis Island Administration and further advancing the good governance agenda.

Harris also commended his political running mates of the People’s Labour Party, the People’s Action Movement led by Shawn Richards and the Concerned Citizens Movement led by Mark Brantley on being duly elected by the people, and for their commitment and willingness to continue to serve in the best interest of citizens and residents.

In a congratulatory statement, Barbados Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, who chairs the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), said, “The overwhelming nature of the triumph at the polls indicates the scale of confidence that the people of the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis have in the ability of the party to guide them to a secure and prosperous future.”
