The last Local Government Election was held in October 2013.

Both the People’s National Movement and the United National Congress have been screening for candidates to represent the party as local government councillors since August.

Local Government reform, which was promised by the PNM prior to elections, is expected to also go to parliament before the year ends.

However, Local Government Minister Franklyn Khan has said changes would not affect the upcoming election.
