By BBN Staff: At the invitation of the Government of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) informed that it has fielded a CARICOM Election Observation Mission to monitor the General Elections which will be held in that country on Friday, 5 June 2020.
The three-member Mission will be headed by Gasper Jean Baptiste, Chief Elections Officer of Saint Lucia, who has served as a member of CARICOM Election Observation Missions to other CARICOM Member States.
The other members of the Mission are
H.E. Arley Gill (National of Grenada); and
Chester Arlington Humphrey (National of Grenada).
The CARICOM Election Observation Mission proposes to meet with the electoral officials, leaders of political parties and other stakeholders of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, and will monitor the voting process including the opening of the poll, the casting of votes, the closing of the poll and the counting of the ballots.
The members of the Observation Mission arrived in St. Kitts and Nevis on Wednesday, 3 June 2020 and will depart on Sunday, 7 June 2020.
