Leon Natta-Nelson challenges Dr Timothy Harris to debate accountability, responsibility and plans for St Christopher 7
Basseterre, St Kitts, December 4, 2019 – February 16, 2020 will be exactly five years when the last general election was held and with 74 more days remaining to that day, the St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) NextGen candidate who will challenge Prime Minister Timothy Harris when the election date is announced has called on him to “ring the bell” and to to debate him on the issues.
In a message to the residents of St Christopher 7, the constituency that he seeks to represent in the new National Assembly, Natta-Nelson promised “new leadership to the people of number 7.”
Referring to the many fake FaceBook profiles such as Mabel that attack him daily, Natta-Nelson told Party supporters at an East Basseterre meeting that he is not afraid.
“Peter Wickham’s poll that show him (Harris) not doing too good in his constituency and it has awaken Mable. Tell Tim, tell Len, tell Mable, I am not afraid. They know where I live and where I can be found. I have not moved,” said Natta-Nelson who challeged Dr Harris “to come and debate me.”
“Come and debate and we will talk about the plans for Constituency 7. Come and debate me and we will talk about responsibility (and) accountability. Let us discuss ideas and plans, if you can debate me,” said Natta-Nelson, who also had a message to all Labour supporters.
“I want you to stay vigilant. I want you to stay hopeful. I want you to stay red and ready because if the man ring the bell we done ready. We ready anytime,” said Natta-Nelson.
He told supporters that the SKNLP has been consulting with them on the several burning issues that affect their lives on a daily basis in defence of their right to free and fair elections, an adequate supply of water from a safe and secure Basseterre Valley aquifer and for accountability, transparency and good governance in the affairs of St Kitts and Nevis.
“We have been consistently with you to show our commitment on issues to defend the water table (aquifer) and demonstrating outside the Electoral Office on Central Street to defend your right to be registered, to remain registered and for free and fear elections. We have marched on Labour Day and we have armed ourselves with all the information needed in preparation for the next elections. We are ready, our hearts should be full, our feet energised and our minds tough because we are ready to fight as Labour is on the move. Labour is young and ready to manage the affairs of St Kitts and Nevis,” said Natta-Nelson, who urged all supporters to be prepared for the NextGen SKN administration.
“A government that will bring hope, a government that will provide adequate and affordable housing, a government that will bring the necessary changes that are lacking at the J N France General Hospital and other health institutions in St Kitts and Nevis,” said Nelson-Natta, who pointed out that his colleague, Dr Terrance Drew and the new Labour Government will construct a state of the art hospital in the next five-year term when elected.
He said the people at home and abroad are ready to change the corrupt government.
