Dr. Ralph Gonsalves

There will be no changes to the boundaries of the 15 constituencies in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for the upcoming general elections.

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said that the three-member commission has unanimously decided to keep the current boundaries.

PM Gonsalves said on radio last week that the Constituency Boundaries Commission had reported one week earlier to Governor General Susan Dougan, who sent a copy to him.

The commission was chaired by former permanent secretary Godfred Pompey, who the governor general chose in her own deliberate judgment.

The prime minister’s nominee was lawyer Stephen Williams, while Etson Cummings, a retired lecturer in law at the community college, was the nominee of Opposition Leader Godwin Friday.

General elections are constitutionally due by March 2021 but PM Gonsalves has said that Vincentians will go to the polls by the end of the year.
