Today has been declared a one-off, post-election, public holiday in St. Kitts and Nevis on the occasion of the victory, yesterday, of the St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party at the polls.

Today's declaration of a one-off public holiday is as we had surmised, earlier this month (2010-01-10), when the January 25th elections were announced.

Until today, Saint Kitts and Nevis had never declared a post-election public holiday, but such post-election public holidays are a common occurrence in many Caribbean countries (2009-12-30, 2009-09-08, 2009-03-13, 2005-05-05, 2005-02-22, 2003-05-21, 2003-10-21, 2003-11-27, and 1997-05-23).
