The two election petitions filed by the Opposition New Democratic Party (NDP) are to be heard by the Court on May 2 and 4, 2017.

The NDP has challenged the results of the December 9, 2015, general elections in the Central Leeward and North Windward constituencies.

On Tuesday March 7, the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal sitting in St. Lucia reinstated the election petitions filed by NDP candidates Ben Exeter of Central Leeward and Lauron Baptiste of North Windward, citing apparent bias of the trial judge, Justice Brian Cottle.

Chief Justice, Janice Pereira has now appointed High Court Judge, Justice Esco Henry, to hear the case.

The hearings are scheduled to take place at the High Court in Kingstown.
