The Electoral Department is busy finalizing the voters list following Prime Minister Dr. Kenny D. Anthony’s recent election date announcement.

Voters will go to the polls on June 6 to elect a government.

Civic and Voter Education Coordinator in the Electoral Department, Alymphia Lionel, said the priority now is to finalize and publish the voters lists by the end of May.

“The final voters list should be out by May 30 and it will be posted in all communities, on public buildings, post offices, and the Central Library. We’re going to have it on our website, and at all our sub-offices such as Gros Islet; Grande Riviere, Dennery; and Soufriere, and you can check the main office on High Street,” she said.

Last Thursday, Dr. Anthony announced that Parliament was dissolved to pave the way for the upcoming general election.

“Fellow Saint Lucians, the die is cast. Decision time has arrived. Today, I advised the Governor General to dissolve the Parliament of Saint Lucia, and to issue Writs of Election to pave the way for the general election. The general election will be held on June 6, 2016. Nomination day will be May 27, 2016.”

General elections are constitutionally due, for the latest, three months after the first sitting of Parliament, which was held on January 5, 2012. The government would have had until April 5, 2017 to call the next election.
