Slate 2020: UNC St. Joseph
While there are traditional "safe seats" for the two major parties, marginal constituencies have been a major deciding factor in the outcome of elections. St. Joseph is one of those seats. Highly contested a few years ago with a by-election after the departure of Herbert Volney from the People's Partnership, the PNM won that seat with Terrence Deyalsingh who secured it again one year later in the 2015 general election. The UNC is hoping to swing things in their favour with candidate Ahloy Hunt, who joined us via zoom.
