Nevisians head to the polls Tuesday for the latest elections on the island.

Nevis Premier Joseph Parry’s Nevis Reformation Party is facing off against the Concerned Citizens Movement, led by Vance Amory.

All five seats of the Nevis Island Assembly are in play.

Parry officially called elections at the beginning of the month.

The vote comes two years after a controversial election in Nevis that led to the resignation of the St Kitts and Nevis Supervisor of Elections over alleged procedural errors.

A CARICOM observation mission is currently in Nevis to monitor the vote in all five constituencies.
