Landslide victory for CCM in Nevis

Basseterre, St. Kitts, 19th December, 2017 (MyVueNews.com– It is a landslide victory for the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) that defeated the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) four seats to one seat, in the 18th December Nevis Island Elections.

The Nevisian electorate choose to place the future of Nevis in the hands of the CCM Party, for a second term, in a party now led by Mark Brantley, who previously served under recently retired Premier Vance Amory as deputy premier.
