The newly formed National Integrity Party (NIP) has dismissed suggestions that it is being funded by Prime Minister Denzil Douglas.

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, May 13 – The newly formed National Integrity Party (NIP) has dismissed suggestions that it is being funded by Prime Minister Denzil Douglas even as Opposition Leader Mark Brantley says he supports calls for campaign finance rules in the twin island Federation.

NIP leader Glenroy Blanchette, speaking on WINN FM radio here, said that the newly formed party has no benefactors and dismissed speculation that it is being funded either by Prime Minister Douglas or the state-owned Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation (SIDF).

“I want to dispel all the propaganda, all the rumours out there that the National Integrity Party is being funded by the SIDF or Prime Minister Denzil Douglas.  Very far from the truth,” Blanchette said, adding “we’re a grassroots organization.  

“We don’t’ intend to be influenced by special interest groups…we are starting from scratch.  It has been very challenging, but we’re still optimistic,” Blanchette said, noting that the party had already drafted a constitution and would seek to make its presence felt on various social networks.
