Concerned Citizens' Movement

The Concerned Citizens' Movement is a Nevis-based political party in Saint Kitts and Nevis. Led by Mark Brantley, the party currently holds three of the eleven seats in the National Assembly.

History

The party was established in 1987 and first contested national elections in 1989, when they received 6.4% of the vote and won a single seat.[1] In the 1993 elections their vote share rose to 10.9% and they won two seats. Although their vote share fell to 7.0% in 1995 they retained both seats. The party retained both seats in elections in 2000, 2004 and 2010. On October 30, 2017, Premier of Nevis Vance Amory handed over party leadership to Mark Brantley. An unprecedented move with this becoming the first time in St Kitts-Nevis politics, that an elected representative has passed on the leadership of a party without being unseated.

In the December 2017 Nevis Island election, Mark Brantley remained Premier after leading the CCM to victory, winning 4 out of 5 available seats (an increase of one).

Among their current executive members is Alexis Jeffers.[2]
