General Election Results - 6 March 2000

Federal elections were held on 6 March 2000. There were 34,441 registered electors.

A total of 22 candidates were nominated to contest the General Elections in the 11 constituencies: In St. Kitts: People's Action Movement (PAM) - 8; St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) - 8. In Nevis: Concerned Citizens' Movement (CCM) - 3; Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) – 3.

The St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP), headed by Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas, won the general election held on 6 March 2000, securing a second consecutive five-year term of office.

The electoral campaign was marked by the deportation, on 19 February, of Charles Miller, an alleged drug trafficker, to Miami, who for four years defied US attempts to extradite him. This extradition was a boom for Denzil Douglas, who has vaunted his government's will to fight crime.

In St. Kitts, eight seats of the 11 at stake in the 14-member National Assembly went to the Labour Party. The People's Action Movement, led by Mr. Kennedy Simmonds, which governed the country from 1980 to 1995, lost the only seat that it held in the last legislature and is not represented in the new National Assembly.  In Nevis, the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) won two seats and the Nevis Reformation Party kept the third one.

Voter turnout was 64.2%.
