Ralph Gonsalves remains St Vincent and the Grenadines PM

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves and his Unity Labour Party will serve at fifth consecutive term after Saint Vincent and the Grenadines ran their general elections on Nov. 5.

Unity Labour Party won nine of the total 15 parliament seats which is an increase of one seat than their last term. The New Democratic Party, led by Godwin Friday, won six seats, one lesser than the previous elections.

Gonsalves thanked voters for their support through a Facebook post, where he posted: “It’s a celebration time.”

Gonsalves, 74, acknowledged that there have been “bruised sentiments” on both sides of the political divide, but said after being sworn in by the island’s first female Governor-General, Susan Dougan, that the time for division was over.
