Following the legislative elections, Daniel Gibbs challenged the results and lodged an appeal with the Constitutional Council.
He maintained that Frantz Gumbs "would have benefited from irregular material support from the Collectivities of Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélemy" and asked for the cancellation of the elections of June 11 and 19 locally. His appeal was examined by the Constitutional Council.
The latter considered that his “allegations [were] not accompanied by the details and justifications enabling their merits to be assessed”. The Constitutional Council therefore rejected Daniel Gibbs' request. The decision was made on Friday.
Moreover, the Constitutional Council considered that “in view of the number of votes obtained by each of the candidates, the alleged facts, assuming them to be established, could not have had an influence on the outcome of the ballot”.
