the Executive Branch of Government was confident that it will be
completed in good time.

Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas, Cabinet constituted the
Boundaries Technical Committee which is comprised of an economist, a
demographer, a statistician and a land surveyor.
Technical Committee is to conduct the necessary demographic and survey
work to ensure that the 11 constituencies - 8 in St. Kitts and 3 in
Nevis - are equitable as possible for the nextFederal Elections constitutionally due by October 2009.
The Committee will advise the Constituency Boundaries Commission on all matters of realignment.
