Saint Kitts and Nevis

Yearbook 2010

Saint Christopher and Nevis. According to COUNTRYAAH, the ruling Labor Party SKNLP (St Kitts-Nevis Labor Party) secured a fourth term when elections to the National Assembly were held in January. The party got six of the eight selectable seats on the island of Saint Christopher and two of three seats on Nevis. The right-wing People's Action Movement (PAM) claimed that cheating had occurred and questioned the result. But Prime Minister Denzil Douglas swore after a few days of office again and after a few weeks had appointed a government with some new names.

In the election movement, SKNLP promised to accelerate growth and reduce the large and costly government debt. When the budget was presented, Douglas, who was also Finance Minister, warned of tough times. One news was that VAT was introduced from November 1 in a simplification of the tax system when ten other indirect taxes were simultaneously abolished.
