The High Court today issued an injunction which restrains His Excellency the Governor General from signing any proclamation to effect any boundary changes until a further order of the Court. This in effect means that no boundary change can be effected by the illegitimate Douglas regime at this time.
We continue to challenge the legitimacy of the Denzil Douglas administration.
In our view, government continues to function without the appropriate constitutional basis.
We see the convening of Parliament without the tabling and debate of the Motion of No Confidence as an abuse of executive power.
We should recall that there are two (2) motions of no confidence before Parliament at this time. The first was filed on December 11th, 2012 and it is unheard of in functioning parliamentary democracies that a motion could be held in abeyance for so long.
We the “elected majority” therefore cannot countenance this subversion of our democracy. We call upon all citizens and residents to join with us so that together we can fight to preserve our democracy.
Today, the Hon. Eugene Hamilton will take a watching brief to Parliament as we intend to invoke Section 41(2) of the Constitution of St. Kitts and Nevis.
