Vincentians to vote November 5
The people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will vote in General Elections on 5 November 2020.
Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves made the announcement Thursday night, while saying the country’s Parliament will be dissolved on Friday and that Nomination Day will be 20 October.
The Elections are expected to be a straight fight between Dr. Gonsalves’ Unity Labour Party (ULP, which will be seeking its fifth consecutive term in office, and the New Democratic Party (NDP) being led into elections for the first time by lawyer Dr. Godwin Friday.
In the last elections in December 2015, the ULP won the NDP by eight seats to seven, the same one-seat margin as the previous election in 2010.
