SAN JUAN – The governing Unity Labor Party is “likely to emerge victorious” from the Dec. 9 general elections in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados-based pollster CADRES said Tuesday.
A survey carried out from Nov. 20-22 among 800 registered voters found that 43 percent planned to vote for the ULP, while 28 percent expressed support for the main opposition New Democratic Party.
The remaining 29 percent of respondents said they were undecided or declined to state a preference.
The poll has a margin of error of plus/minus 5 percent.
The prime minister, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, is seeking an unprecedented fourth consecutive term in office against the NDP’s Arnhim Eustace, a former premier.
The one-time British colony has a population of approximately 110,000.
