Basseterre, St. Kitts, 10th January, 2018 ( – Premier Mark Brantley is pushing for more professional behaviour from the Civil Service on Nevis.

In a recent posting on his Facebook page, Premier Brantley seems determine to foster a more disciplined and service friendly Civil Service.

He refers to “re-igniting the culture of discipline, respect and professionalism up and down the line in the public service in dealings with each other and with the Nevisian Public”.

The use of social media has come under scrutiny, and a Nevis Island Administration official has indicated that new guidelines for the use of social media during work hours will be revealed soon.

So, too, is the use of Government vehicles outside normal work hours. The crackdown will result in the need for special permission outside of normal use of essential vehicles.

Commenting of the tightening and discipline of the Civil Service, Brantley stated, “I appreciate that change is sometimes difficult but we shall insist on professionalism in all of our engagements with the general public.”
