The Supervisor of Elections in St. Kitts and Nevis has confirmed he has not dealt with concerns of irregularities in electoral offices across the nation.
Two opposition parties in St. Kitts and Nevis wrote to the Supervisor, Mr. Elvin Bailey, addressing concerns in some electoral offices.
Mr. Bailey said on December 1 that he has not addressed these issues nor has he responded to the letters, acknowledging he revised letters ‘outlining what they call irregularities in the system’.
“I have received one as recently as November 27 and I have received letters from the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) saying that transfers and so on were not published since 2015. I have not yet responded to those claims of irregularities,” said Mr. Bailey.
“Of course one would have to discuss those matters with the Electoral Commission and get their approval to respond and that has not happened, but we intend to do so.”
The SKNLP called for Mr. Bailey to public all revised monthly lists of voters in St. Kitts and Nevis, which have become due for publication after February 2015.
Mr. Bailey has also been accused by the SKNLP of removing the names of Nigerian students, Commonwealth citizens and nationals from the St. Kitts and Nevis voter list in defiance of a high court ruling.
