NRP Looking Forward to Start of Election Petition Matters

CHARLESTOWN, NEVIS, January 30, 2023 (Nevis Reformation Party) – On February 15,
2023 at 10:00am, two election petition matters, filed by representatives of the Nevis Reformation
Party (NRP) will get underway in Nevis.

Justice Patrick Thompson Jr. will hear strike out applications in relation to the election petitions
filed by the NRP’s Jaedee Caines, who contested the Nevis 1 (St. Paul’s) seat and Dr. Patricia
Bartlette, who contested the Nevis 2 (St. John’s) seat in the December 12, 2022 Nevis Island
Assembly elections.

The date was established earlier today (January 30, 2023) during a virtual hearing in which
attorneys for petitioners Caines and Bartlette and the respondents were present.
The NRP is confident that the matters will be allowed to move forward and that the NRP will be
victorious in the end.

Both Caines and Bartlette have maintained that there were significant irregularities surrounding
the recent Nevis Island Assembly elections and that those irregularities have affected the
outcome of the results that were announced.
