Leon Natta-Nelson, the St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party candidate, who is challenging Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris for the St Christopher 7 seat in the upcoming general elections has listed a number of questions that he wants nationals living in New York to ask Dr Harris when he meets with them next week, on the heels of the United Nations General Assembly.
The questions range from the upcoming general elections, the failure to make public the IMF Article IV Consultation on St Kitts and Nevis, a number of reports to be made public as required by law, the scandals involving the prime minister, nepotism, activation of the Integrity In Public Life legislation and matters pertaining to the constituency he represents.
“Why did you bring changes to the National Assembly Elections Act that would deny overseas residents of St. Kitts and Nevis to vote in the next general elections?” Natta Nelson questions.
“Why after a whole year, the IMF report for the financial year 2018 has not been made available to the people of St. Kitts-Nevis? What is the government hiding from the taxpayers of our country?” he continues
“Why haven’t there been published SIDF reports for the years 2017 and 2018? What is the government hiding from the people of the Federation?” the Labour party caretaker for Constituency 7 asked.
“Why have you appointed all your siblings and members of the PLP executive to such critical positions in the affairs of the St. Kitts and Nevis Government?
Why has the Government not brought any major investment under the CBI programme?” Natta Nelson queried.
“When can the people of St. Kitts and specifically Nevis, get a proper account of the $200 million dollars that you claimed was being squandered by Premier Mark Brantley?” he questioned.
The St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party representative posted the questions on his social media page. A number of other questions that put the matter of government accountability to the forefront were also asked.
