Nevisians will head to the polls Jan. 22, Premier Joseph Parry announced this weekend.

The election will come eight days after Nomination Day, set for Jan. 14.

“we do not need a long and drawn out period of campaigning, there is plenty of work to be done and we have, as an administration, to hit the road running, very early in the New Year,” Parry said in a national address.

Parry’s Nevis Reformation Party will face off against the Concerned Citizens Movement, led by Vance Amory.

The five seats of the Nevis Island Assembly, which meets in the second floor of the home in which United States Founding Father Alexander Hamilton was born, are all up for grabs.

“There’s much going on around us, as an island, a Federation and a Region, that we have little or no ability to determine,” Parry said. “But there is the aspect of political, social and economic stability of Nevis, that we can very much influence, and here is where imminent general elections for a new Nevis Island Administration come into sharp focus.”
