Political Leader of the opposition St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) the Rt Hon Dr Denzil L Douglas says he is “gratified and overwhelmed by the support the party is receiving from St Kitts and Nevis nationals in the diaspora.”
Dr Douglas recently returned from a tour of the cities of Birmingham and London in the United Kingdom, where he and other party officials, Chairman, Dr Terrance and Member of Parliament for St Christopher 3 (West Basseterre) Hon Konris Maynard updated overseas nationals on important political, economic and social issues back home.
Townhall meetings were also held with nationals in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Miami, New York, Toronto, St Thomas, St Croix, Tortola, St Maarten and Anguilla.
Dr Douglas said that many of those present at the packed town hall meetings pledged their continued support of the party and have since made good on their promise to provide financial and other support for the upcoming general elections.
“It was clear that citizens living inside and outside of St Kitts and Nevis were extremely disappointed in the performance of the present Team Unity Government and wanted to see a return to prosperity under a new SKNLP Next Gen administration,” said Dr Douglas.
“Donations are pouring in from overseas citizens and their friends, and it is clear that the current prime minister is aware of our growing support and successful fund-raising efforts. As a result, it is becoming quite evident that the incumbent administration will do everything in their power to block financial support to the Labour Party,” Dr Douglas added.
