Douglas Wattley: Term limits bill and false news of arrest are among “dirty tricks” to keep Denzil Douglas out of parliament
The “Tenure of Office of Prime Minister (Amendment) Bill and the false news of his arrest in London are part of a diabolical plan of “dirty tricks” to keep Leader of the Opposition, the Right Hon Dr Denzil L Douglas from contesting the next election or becoming the next prime minister of the twin-island federation.
The Dominica Diplomatic Passport cases brought in the High Court against Dr Douglas by Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris and his Attorney General, Sen the Hon Vincent Byron Jr and the civil matter by Cuthbert “Big Chief” Mills, represented by the same lawyer who prepared the government case, were also part of the plan to get Dr Douglas disqualified from sitting in the National Assembly.
Wattley is also of the view that if the 2020 elections are held on the boundaries which were earmarked for the 2015 poll, or if Team Unity presents new boundaries, it still would require that Timothy Harris runs against Douglas.”
Wattley cautioned that the St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party must not to be distracted.
On the false report being pedalled against Dr Douglas by operatives of the government and its coalition parties, Mr Wattley said he and hundreds of persons have called England, searched the internet, spoke to friends and families and “nobody can find anything.”
The Tenure of Office of Prime Minister (Amendment) Bill was debated in the National Assembly today.
