Nationals of St Kitts and Nevis residing in Anguilla have been included in a worldwind tour by leaders of the St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) in hearing from the disapora on the diabolical plan by Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris to take away their rights to vote in the upcoming 2020 general elections.
After meeting with nationals in neighbouring St Maarten/St Martin, the three candidates – Ambassador Steve Wrensford, St Christopher 4; Ambassador Kenneth “Kenny” Douglas and Mr Leon Natta-Nelson – were greeted as they arrive in Anguilla by boat.
The visit to Anguilla and St Maarten comes following the turnout of hundreds to nationals to recent town hall meetings in Miami, New York, Toronto, Tortola, St Thomas and St Croix and the tremendous display of support and enthusiastic reception that the message of hope and liberation has taken root and that the overseas nationals are ready to join with the local residents and citizens to change the Team Unity Government which has stagnated the country.
“We in the Labour Party are truly inspired and motivated to see the tremendous level of support and the rising clamour to change this uncaring, incompetent and corrupt government that is led by Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris. Labour is fired up and ready to go,” said Dr Douglas during his weekly radio programme “Ask the Leader.”
“It makes it even clearer why Dr Harris and his coalition members are trying their best to prevent our overseas nationals from voting in the next general elections. The display of support for the Labour Party by our overseas nationals is overwhelming,” said Dr Douglas, who added that “it demonstrates that we have the winning formula with this NextGenSKN team.”
He said he expects Dr Harris “will probably re-double his efforts to disenfranchise our overseas nationals.”
” However, as the Leader of the Opposition, I pledge to do all in my power within the bounds of the law to ensure that any such measure to disenfranchise our overseas nationals will be vigorously resisted and if passed, to be challenged in court,” said Dr Douglas.
