Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

2007 Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

According to CountryAAH, the December 2005 parliamentary elections were won by the United Labor Party (ULP) and Gonsalves was able to begin his second term as prime minister.

The opposition party NDP convened in June 2007 for a demonstration in the capital to protest what was perceived as planned election fraud during the upcoming elections. The NDP accused Gonsalves of giving Cuban workers in the country the right to vote for their support.

St. Vincent was joined by Antigua in June 2009 in the Latin American ALBA collaboration.

In November 2009, a referendum was held on whether the country should be transformed into a republic, thus finally breaking its connection with Britain. However, the proposal was voted down by 55.64% against 43.13%.
