St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN):  An acknowledgement on the part of Peoples Action Movement leader Shawn Richards, that it will take a lot of consultation and consensus seeking to make the unity partnership work effectively.

PAM and its parliamentary allies the Concerned Citizens Movement of Nevis  and the People’s Labour Party of Dr Timothy Harris and Sam Condor, have teamed up in a bid to defeat the governing Labour Party at the polls.

Speaking on the WINN FM programme Voices on Thursday, Richards said the Unity partners were up to the challenge of making the arrangement work.

“It doesn't mean though that  differences will not arise, and so there will be challenges in dealing with some of those particular differences,” the PAM leader said.

PAM Leader Shawn Richards“When you begin to look at appointments for senators, speaker of the national assembly, etc. of course you are going to need consensus from the different  parties,” he acknowledged while expressing confidence that those matters would be properly dealt with.

The Unity partners were expected to name a leader at their public meeting on Thursday night.

The PAM leader said though not making much of their preparation plans public, the three-party unity arrangement has been working hard at having a harmonized position on matters of national interest.

According to Richards, a memorandum of understanding among the partners was developed several months ago.

He indicated that the MOU outlines a number of “far ranging and far reaching” different issues that the three parties intend to tackle as a government of national unity.

Constitutional reform, two term limits for the prime minister, the question of “equity” for the smaller partner of the federation – Nevis – were among those mentioned by the PAM leader.
