The Organization of American States will be observing the general elections in St Kitts and Nevis later this month.

OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza and St Kitts and Nevis’ Permanent Representative to the OAS, Jacintha Lorna Henry-Martin, signed an electoral observation mission agreement on Friday at OAS Headquarters in Washington.

The chief of mission will be Ambassador Frank Almaguer.

“Electoral observations for us are very important and I can assure you, Madame Ambassador that we will have a mission up to the requirements of your country and of your democracy,” Insulza told Henry-Martin.

St Kitts and Nevis will be choosing its next government on Feb. 16.

“I believe that this will constitute another rung on the ladder of successes we´ve had in the execution of elections that prove that we want to remain among the ranks of those that honor and respect what democracy represents, not only for our nation, but for our peoples,” Henry-Martin said.
