Saint Kitts and Nevis

Yearbook 1997

Saint Christopher and Nevis. In the election to the Nevis Parliament (Nevis Island Assembly), the separatist party Concerned Citizens' Movement (CCM) took three out of a total of five seats. According to Countryaah, the other two went to the Nevis Reformation Party. In October, the five members of Parliament in Nevis Island voted unanimously to resign from the Saint Christopher and Nevis island federation. The decision would be subject to a referendum within six months. The reason for the proposed "divorce" was, according to Nevis Prime Minister Vance Amory, that Nevis has been breached in the political and economic relations of the two islands ever since the 1983 liberation from Britain.
