BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, Mar 22, CMC – Embattled Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas says his ruling St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) is prepared for a general election constitutionally due by 2015.
“The Labour Party stands ready to be prepared for any event electorally. We are a party established since 1932. We have been in government for the last 17 years after being able to defeat a 15 year opposition regime (PAM),” said Prime Minister Douglas, adding the SKNLP “has the confidence and the support of our people if we were to go into a general election, if they were to be called.
“We have made it absolutely clear the SKNLP would not lose any motion of no confidence in the Parliament and the Constitution gives us options which is why I am confident that we will not lose any motion of no confidence if it comes to the vote,” he said on his weekly radio programme “Ask the Prime Minister”.
Prime Minister Douglas told listeners while he is confident “we will not lose that vote” the government also had other options.
“…if we believe the chances are that we will lose the vote, then we will go to our options which are placed clearly in our Constitution,” said Prime Minister Douglas.
Earlier this month, Opposition Leader Mark Brantley said he had written Governor General Sir Edmund Lawrence indicating that six of the 11 legislators in Parliament no longer supported Dr. Douglas and called for the debate on the motion to be held without further delay. (2013)
