Alleged Government Interference in the Work of the Supervisor of Elections Denied

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Just days ahead of the June 5 general elections, there were allegations that the government was interfering in the work of the Supervisor of Elections.

Making the allegation, one of the members of the Electoral Commission, Jason Hamilton.

WINN FM was last week able to put that allegation to Attorney General Vincent Byron.

“That’s nonsense. They are spurious, I think that this has been one of the elections that was very fair. I think that the people were very satisfied except for some long wait in line to vote and the question of the counting. But in terms of the conduct of the work of the supervisor, of the office of the supervisor as well as the commission he has been very open, very transparent, he has come to the public regularly, he has alerted them to what he was doing and I think that any such allegation is far-fetched.”

In his June 3rd interview with WINN FM, Commissioner Hamilton, a former attorney general, made an even more serious claim.
