Konris affirms intention to lobby for constituency #3 in new parliament

Maynard won the seat in that district in the recently held General Elections, after he unseated the longtime representative in that area, Sam Condor.

“I’m elated that the people of constituency #3 saw past all of the smoke screen, and they saw what I was going to offer to them, as their parliamentary representative for the area,” Maynard said, adding, “I will not be playing political games and using the parliament to do so.”  

He noted that the work for the people of West Basseterre has just begun, and there is a long road to go. He told MiyVue.com that even though the Labour Party did not win the elections, he will still lobby the government of the day to provide for the people of the constituency.

“Regardless of the fact that my party was unable to form the next government, I would assume that the present government will not isolate or marginalize the constituency, because they voted very strongly for the Labour candidate,” Maynard said.

Further, the first time parliamentarian said that there are a number of areas he hopes to see being looked into including sports and agriculture development.

“A number of the things I would love to see in the constituency when I go to parliament, and even before. I will be pushing for them daily. Whether it be sports development, to get sports facilities, whether it is to beautify the constituency through cleanups or the cleaning of abandon lots, or it is to empower people through agriculture or education, whatever the cause, I’m going to be on the forefront in parliament representing the needs of the constituents of constituency #3,” Maynard disclosed.

When questioned on the possibility of Labour positioning themselves as shadow cabinet members, Maynard said that would be made public, if they decide on such a move.

“You will know for sure our strategy and our position going forward on how we will operate as an opposition. Rest assured though that we will be a responsible opposition trying to deal with the people’s affair, because that’s what we were elected to do,” Maynard said.

The St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party won three of the eight seats on offer on St. Kitts, while their counterparts on Nevis won one of the three seats on that island, bringing the SKNLP and NRP coalition in the federal parliament to four seats.
