It is a record, claimed Parry on Sunday, (28th October, 2012), that is filled with achievements and accomplishments, of which the people of Nevis should be proud.
He said that the gains they made in the first four years of their first term starting in 2006, have been used as a staging ground for other successes since last year’s island election on 11th July. The effort in this second term, assured Parry, has been to consolidate the gains that had been made from six years ago.
“From day one of this second term we recognized that the opposition had one intention; to obstruct our efforts to move Nevis forward; to paralyze and bring this Government and Nevis to its knees,” Parry proclaimed.
He added that his Administration has worked tirelessly over the past six years to restore hope, pride and confidence in Nevis and ‘things Nevisian’.
“We have attended to the needs of Nevisian residents at home and those domiciled elsewhere. We placed Nevis back on the global map in a positive way…that’s why we say this evening that we, the Nevis Reformation Party, is best for Nevis,” he indicated.
Parry also made clear that the decision about what type of election will be called shortly, saying it is that of the Governor General, acting on the advice of the Premier.
He admitted though that he has sought legal advice on the matter and it was the considered view of the legal fraternity around the region that they are within their right to determine the nature of election that shall be called in Nevis, within the constitutionally stipulated timeframe for such to be called.
Mr. Parry made his remarks at his party’s annual convention on Sunday at the Nevis Performing Arts Centre, just outside of Charlestown.
