“The opposition party of the Concerned Citizens Movement has led the people to believe that it was the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) who just took off names off of the voters’ list without reason, and nothing could be further from the truth as no member of the NRP party has authority to do such a thing ,” said the Premier.
He went on to explain that members of the NRP did object to names on the Voters’ List, as did the CCM.
Premier Parry also noted that there were 8 persons who were objected to, but still reside in St. John’s Parish. He explained that those 8 persons could not be found by the postman because they moved from one village to another without informing the post office.
According to the Premier, 42 persons who lived overseas were incorrectly registered. In addition, there were 151 persons who live in other constituencies around Nevis but were wrongfully registered in St. John’s parish.
Premier Parry concluded, that it is time that people everywhere are told the full truth about persons who were wrongfully registered on the Voters’ List in the St. John’s Parish, and the false information that the CCM has peddled that it was the NRP who simply took names off the list without due cause be cleared up.
