Thousands Protest the Minority Dr. Denzil Douglas led Government of St.Kitts-Nevis

Guest » 1pm - October 22, 2013
Citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis took to the streets of Basseterre en masse Friday October 11th in yet another protest demonstration against the Dr. Denzil Douglas-led Labour government. The October 11 march was organized by the Unity coalition of parliamentarians who called on the people to demonstrate against the Prime Minister's cunctation in tabling the pending Motion of No Confidence. Four opposition parliamentarians filed the motion in December 2012 and in February dismissed Minister of Agriculture Hon. Dr. Timothy Harris and former Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Sam Condor joined the call for the motion to be debated. The MPs contended in writing to the Governor General that as the six of them would vote in favor of the motion and with only five on the government benches to oppose it, the motion would pass. If the MONC succeeded, PM Douglas would be forced to resign within 3 days or call a general election. Dr. Douglas has by all accounts ignored the motion; a delay Leader of the Federal Opposition Hon. Mark Brantley says is setting a "dangerous precedence in the region".
