History will be made in the St. Kitts and Nevis Parliament today when the government introduces legislation to impose term limits on anyone holding the post of Prime Minister.

The Team Unity administration has put forward two five-year terms as the maximum length of time an individual can serve in the position.

Attorney General and Minister responsible for Justice and Legal Affairs, Elections and Communications Vincent F. Byron Junior will pilot the Tenure of Office of Prime Minister Bill, 2015.

The legislation is in keeping with the promise which the Dr. Timothy Harris-led party made during the election campaign that preceded its February 16th, 2015 general election victory.
