From the press unit in the Office of the Prime Minister

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis the Honourable Dr. Timothy Harris congratulated the Right Hon. Dr. Keith Mitchell and his New National Party (NNP) on its resounding success in Grenada’s general election March 13.

The Mitchell-led New National Party won all 15 contested seats in the election, defeating the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

In a congratulatory letter to his CARICOM colleague, Harris said the following:

“Gaining all 15 seats – for a second time in a row – is no simple feat. It speaks to your sterling leadership and your ability to inspire your nation as you advance with your pro-development agenda. I look forward to continue serving with you at the bilateral, regional and international level to tackle the issues [that] threaten to stymie our collective growth and development. In extending my sincere best wishes for your continued good health and success, I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to you the assurances of my highest esteem and consideration.”

Tuesday’s overwhelming victory marked the third time the Mitchell-led NNP won all 15 seats in a general election; first in 1999 elections, then again in 2013 and now in 2018.
