The streets were filled with colours yesterday as candidates from nine political parties - and a smattering of independents - kicked off the 2015 campaign. For the first time since independence, all 89 parliamentary seats are being contested, although the minutiae of the nomination process almost tripped up some candidates. In the end, the banners were hoisted, the flags were unfurled and the posters went up in record time around the island. It's election time!
