Rt Hon Dr Denzil L Douglas
Federation of St Kitts and Nevis
Dear Hon Prime Minister:
RE: Open letter to Rt Hon Dr Denzil L Douglas, Prime Minister, Calling for Immediate Debate on Motion of No Confidence.
Sir, subsequent to separate meetings with you and then with the Hon Sam T Condor, (then Deputy Prime Minister) and Hon Timothy Harris (former Senior Minister), your two most senior ministers, coupled with recent developments with reference to the resignation of the Hon Sam Condor from your cabinet and the passage of the Senators Bill, which has further heightened this political tension in our nation, we are of the firm view that we are facing a serious political crisis.
Sir, as was also shared with you at our recent meeting, the constitution makes provision to address and respond appropriately to this political crisis. The St Kitts Christian Council and the St Kitts Evangelical Association therefore call upon you to bring to parliament and have debated the Motion of No Confidence without further delay and before any other business is brought to the parliament. This we believe to be in the best interest of our nation at this very trying time. Mr Prime Minister, we solicit your immediate attention and action to this matter as we consider it of highest priority and urgency.
In Prayer for our Nation and In Service to our People,
Rev Nasel W Ephraim Bishop Ron E Dublin-Collins
St Kitts Christian Council St Kitts Evangelical Association
