Charlestown, Nevis (January 18, 2013) — The High Court in Nevis, on Friday morning, dismissed two applications filed by Mark Brantley and Keith Scarborough of the CCM to block Premier Joseph Parry and NRP Deputy Leader Hensley Daniel from participating in the General Election which is just four days away.
Parry was nominated on Monday last to run against CCM’s Keith Scarborough in Constituency Number Five while Daniel was nominated to run against Brantley in Constituency Number Two.
According to news out of Nevis neither Brantley or Scarborough showed up at Court on Friday to receive the outcome.
Deputy leader of the CCM Hon. Mark Brantley told the media earlier this week that the papers were filed seeking to prevent Mr. Parry and Mr. Daniel from running in the upcoming elections (on) the basis of their involvement in the corrupt elections of July 11, 2011 and the findings of the court that the electoral officials – especially Bernadette Lawrence – did what they did to benefit the NRP and to benefit, certainly, the candidacy of Hensley Daniel.
