Eighth Army of Liberation

The Eighth Army of Liberation was a political party in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. It was formed by the United Workers, Peasants and Ratepayers Union.[1] In the 1951 general elections it won all eight seats and formed the government.

However, in 1952 internal conflicts led to a breakaway faction forming the People's Political Party,[1] and the Eighth Army did not contest any further elections.[2]
