History

When C. Columbus visited the islands of Saint Christopher (named after the patron saint of the discoverer, later shortened to Saint Kitts by English settlers) and Nevis in 1493, they were inhabited by Caribs, the Aruak who had previously settled therehad expelled. The English colonization of the Caribbean began in St. Christopher in 1623, and the French settled here in 1625. The central part of the island became English, the two ends French. From 1651 to 1665 France left its part of the island to the Order of Malta. The English settled Nevis from 1628 onwards. The Peace of Utrecht ended the division of St. Christopher by giving the French part to Great Britain. A French attempt at reconquest failed in 1782/83. Slavery was abolished in 1834. With the nearby Anguilla Saint Kitts and Nevis were first combined administratively in 1816. 1958-62 Saint Kitts and Nevis-Anguilla belonged to the West Indian Federation, in 1967 it received autonomy as an associated state within the framework of the West Indian Associated States. Anguilla rebelled in 1967 against the administration by St. Kitts, which was perceived as undesirable supremacy, declared its independence in 1969, was then occupied by British troops and de facto a British colony again. 1980 Anguilla also formally left the union with Saint Kitts and Nevis. On September 19, 1983, Saint Kitts and Nevis became independent. Nevis received the status of a federal state with the right to later independence, but a referendum on Nevis on independence in 1998 failed because of the two-thirds majority required for this. After 30 years of political dominance by the Labor Party (SKNLP), the conservative PAM appointed the prime minister from 1980 to 1995 (sometimes with coalition partners); the early elections in 1995 won the SKNLP, became Prime Minister Denzil Douglas (* 1953), who was re-elected in the 2000, 2004 and 2010 elections.

In December 2012, the opposition put a motion of no confidence in the government of D. Douglas, which was not discussed in parliament. Douglas dismissed the Minister of Commerce and Industry Timothy Harris (* 1964) in January 2013. Shortly thereafter, the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sam Condor resigned. Both went into opposition to the government camp and founded the People’s Labor Party (PLP). Another motion of censure against Douglas was not discussed in parliament in June 2013 either. PLP, PAM and CCM joined forces to form the »Team Unity« alliance, which won the parliamentary elections on February 16, 2015 with the top candidate Harris. T. Harris was sworn in as the new Prime Minister on February 18, 2015. This ended the almost twenty year reign of D. Douglas.
