The upcoming general election here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines is going to be a tight race, and none of the two main political parties can be confident of victory, the Barbados-based Caribbean Development Research Services (CADRES) says.

According to I-Witness News, Regional Pollster, Peter Wickham of CADRES on Wednesday, gave the Caribbean Media Corporation insight into the polls, the results of which he said the client does not want to make public.

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, whose Unity Labour Party (ULP) is seeking a fourth consecutive term in office, has indicated that the elections will be called before year-end, ahead of the March 2016 constitutional deadline.

The election is expected to be a straight race between the ULP and the main opposition New Democratic Party (NDP), over which the ULP holds a one-seat majority in the 15-member Parliament.
