PM says He Willing to Work with CCM Again

However, following the victory of the CCM in 1992 the relationship is said to have gradually deteriorated and slumped to the lowest levels of political antagonism. This has been made even worse in recent times with the decision in 2010, following the General Elections in St. Kitts and Nevis, to invite the lone successful candidate from the Nevis Reformation Party, NRP, to join the Labour Cabinet as Attorney General. NRP, on the other hand, had traditionally been a coalition partner in government with the People’s Action Movement.

Therefore, in the last two years, both NRP and Labour have grown closer while observers claim that CCM has found a new friend in PAM.

But at his monthly press conference, held at Government Headquarters on Wednesday 29th August, 2012, Prime Minister, Dr. Denzil Douglas indicated that he would be willing, once again, to work with members of the Concerned Citizens Movement, if they are returned to the Nevis Island Administration, after the upcoming local elections.

Dr Douglas explained that he has worked with the CCM before, and though he and their members throw blows in parliament, because that is “part of the game” he has no personal feelings against Mark Brantley.

He however stated that the CCM government first has to be created, and then he would work with them, because he will respect the wishes of the people of Nevis. He stated that he and Brantley, who is the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly of St. Kitts & Nevis, get along fine. Brantley is also the CCM Deputy Leader, (to former Nevis Premier, Vance Amory).

Douglas added that he and the party have worked together before and he is willing to once again work with them if they are willing to come back
