Eustace Wants Motion Stalemate in SKN Discussed at OECS Assembly

Arnhim Eustace

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN):  The Parliamentary Opposition in St Vincent and the Grenadines intends making a statement  at the upcoming OECS Assembly, on the motion of no confidence stalemate in St Kitts and Nevis.

That has been confirmed by Opposition Leader Arnhim Eustace, who says that he expects opposition representatives from the federation to raise the matter at next week’s assembly in Antigua.

“I am expecting St Kitts to raise it and I will have my say,”  Eustace told WINN FM.

The Vincentian Opposition Leader is again criticizing regional heads he says are shying away from helping resolve the political crisis in Basseterre.

“I believe we are close enough as a region, where two or three heads of the OECS could get together with the prime minister of St Kitts and bring a resolution to this matter,” The Vincentian Opposition Leader said.

He added that he was not recommending intervention or “criticizing and cussing”, but an informal setting where the issues could be thrashed out.

“It doesn't speak well for parliamentary democracy which we claim to support so strongly if we can’t even get together in an informal meeting,”  Eustace added.    

Opposition MPs in Basseterre say they are discussing the possibility of raising the motion stalemate issue at the OECS Assembly next week.

SKN is and has been a gateway to political changes within the East Caribbean for decades. In the recent past Simmonds was booted and Douglas installed. Kittitians have grown wary of its politicians through Dodgy treatment and disrespect in an out of chambers and are eager to unseat Douglas' cabinet; but do not want to replace him with with a clone of sort or unproven leader. To help others make up their mind, I humbly ask: Have your circumstances improved over the last 7 years and that of our nation as a whole to the extent that unemployment level has fallen? Wouldn't it be true to say that a dollar's worth today compared to 5 years ago is about 0.80 cents? Are you satisfied with VAT? Increased Electricity Rate? and the general delay of justice in SKN? Obviously, show doggy and clone the door!

Abnormal Behavior seems to be the Method of Operation by some in the Federation. The Federation has been turned into a Banana Republic where laws are circumnavigated to accommodate some and frustrate others, and with the United States been used as a Heaven to camouflage wealth under phantom corporation, Kleptocracy has rapidly replaced democracy.
