CARICOM foreign ministers

The 15-member regional grouping, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) will be sending an election observation mission to monitor the general election that will be held in St Lucia on July 26.

This follows an invitation extended from the government of St. Lucia.

The ten-member mission will be headed by Fern Narcis-Scope, Chief Elections Officer of Trinidad and Tobago.

In a statement on Saturday, CARICOM said the Election Observation Mission proposes to meet with the electoral officials, leaders of political parties and other stakeholders in St. Lucia.

It will also monitor the election campaign environment and the voting process including the opening of the poll, the casting of votes, the closing of the poll and the counting of the ballots.

The members of the Observation Mission will arrive on the island over the period July 20 and 22 and will depart on July 28 and 29.

At least 43 candidates have been registered to contest the general election that will be a contest mainly between the two dominant political parties for control of the 17-member Parliament.
