St. Kitts and Nevis - Political parties
There are four political parties that have held seats in the House of Assembly. Although the Labour Party (also known as the Workers' League) dominated the political scene from the 1950s until 1980, it was supplanted after independence by the People's Action Movement. The PAM, led by Prime Minister Kennedy A. Simmonds, won six seats, a clear majority, in both 1984 and 1989. The Labour Party held two seats in 1984 and 1989. The Nevis Reformation Party, founded in 1970 and led by Simeon Daniel, took three seats in 1984 and two seats in 1989, all of which were from constituencies on Nevis. The Concerned Citizen's Movement, under Vance Amory, took one Nevisian seat in 1989. In 1993, the Labour Party and PAM each had four seats. CCM took two seats and the NRP took one seat. In 1995, the Labour Party won seven seats, the PAM, one seat, and the CCM, two seats. In 2000, the Labour Party won all eight seats from St. Kitts. The CCM held its two seats, and the NRP held its single seat.
