The third party the Democratic National Alliance which  began as a breakaway  movement from the Free National Movement has by this general election become a spent force. They  could not field candidates in the 39 constituencies, managing to place candidates in only 15 of them.  None of them got beyond 100 votes. So that appears to be it for them. In 2012 they were able to get 8 per cent of the vote, which allowed the PLP to win on a plurality. Last election they got about 3 per cent and this time there less than one per cent.
