Bailey: Not Everyone Can Be An Election Candidate

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): What are the constraints preventing an individual becoming a candidate for a general election in St Kitts and Nevis.

That matter has been addressed by Supervisor of Elections Elvin Bailey, in his latest education-related electoral article.

The nation is being reminded that persons under allegiance to a foreign power or state can forget about becoming an election candidate.

That applies as well to a minister of religion, what’s described as an undischarged bankrupt – someone having been adjudged or otherwise declared bankrupt under any law.

Supervisor of Elections Bailey points out too that a person certified to be insane or otherwise adjudged to be of unsound mind under any law, cannot be a candidate.

The list also includes persons under a death sentence imposed by a court in any part of the Commonwealth.
