PM responds to critics on words of violence claims

Speaking on his weekly programme ‘Ask the Prime Minister’, Dr. Douglas said that he does not preach, nor does he support violence in any way. 

“I do not believe in violence. We speak out passionately against violence. In fact the very night that I ran the bell, I spoke specifically of having a campaign that is free of violence, and I continue to pursue that position,” Douglas stressed.

Most recently in a Labour Party press conference, Dr. Douglas condemned threats made against Nigerians and foreign nationals, who would be voting on elections day, which is scheduled for 16th February.

Douglas had indicated that he, the commissioners of police and other high ranking members of the force, met and discuss policies that could be implemented for the security of those foreign residents living in St. Kitts and Nevis.

However, speaking on ZIZ radio, Douglas noted that it is a battle for the survival of policies that his party has instituted, suggesting that there are persons who want to “derail” the Labour Party campaign.

“I made it absolutely clear that in this continuing battle, political battle that is, for the survival of policies and programmes, which have put St. Kitts and Nevis into a very positive situation. We will continue to express very strongly our emotions, and very passionately, we will defend what we have achieved as a country and as a people, as a nation and as a party,” Douglas said.

He believes that opposition party leaders are trying to disrupt his campaign by accusing him of promoting violence.
