Jeffers: Relationship between St. Kitts and Nevis not acrimonious

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): A minister in the Nevis Island Administration is dismissing the notion that the relationship between the Nevis government and the Federal government is acrimonious. Nevis Minister Alexis Jeffers speaking on WINN FM’s Voices program Monday said there has always been some challenges in the relationship but he does not think it is acrimonious “in any way.” He said: “But sometimes we just need to understand that sometimes you have to work together to get things done but you also have to respect each other,” Jeffers said. 

Concerns are being raised about the conflict of interest situation involving the Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) party in Nevis. Though it is in government on the island level, it is taking the lead in opposing the Federal Government on St. Kitts. The CCM is also in a unity arrangement with the opposition parties in St. Kitts to oppose the Dr. Denzil Douglas led administration and the party’s deputy leader Mark Brantley; the Federal opposition leader has filed a motion of no confidence against the Federal government some nine months ago. That motion is still to be heard before parliament. Mr. Jeffers is suggesting mutual relationship between both layers of governments is essential to achieve a good working relationship.

If Mr. Jeffers can admit an absence of "acrimony" between the Labour Government and the CCM Administration, despite differences of politics, then that possibly indicates a certain degree of statesmanship exhibited by Prime Minister Douglas and the Nevis Opposition!
