Why has there been a sudden change in the political behaviour?
I trace this change to 2 factors:
1. The competition between the political parties has been altered due to the use of regional and international tactics, which tends to encourage demonization of each other. This behavior is a sharp departure of the world famous Nevisian charm.
2. There are flaws in the foundation of our electoral process, and there has been recent exploitation of these flaws by all political parties, coupled with absent leadership at the Electoral Office. As such, politicians have encouraged citizens and residents to act fraudulently and immorally, to lie and cheat on their electoral registration forms.
In closing, I encourage Nevisian Politicians to re-discover and show the world the proud legacy of electoral conduct on Nevis, as is been currently demonstrated by its constituents.
