General Election Results - 21 June 1984

Elections were held for all the seats in Parliament for the first time since independence was attained in September 1983.  Prior to independence in 1983, general elections in February 1980 resulted in the formation of a PAM (People's Action Movement)/NRP (Nevis Reformation Party) coalition Government, headed by Prime Minister Kennedy Simmonds (PAM), although the long governing Labour Party won 58% of the popular vote.  

The 1984 elections were called eight months early.  There were 23,329 registered electors.

A total of 27 candidates were nominated to contest the General Elections in the 11 constituencies: In St. Kitts: People's Action Movement (PAM) - 8; St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) - 8; WKMB - 5. In Nevis: Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) – 3; PDP - 3.

On polling day, the ruling coalition increased its majority from one seat to seven, in a Parliament expanded by two elective seats to 11.  At the end of the count, the results were as follows: In St. Kitts: People's Action Movement (PAM) - 6; St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) - 2.  In Nevis:  Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) – 3.  Prime Minister Simmonds subsequently formed a new Cabinet.
