Starting shortly before 2pm, Liburd and her fellow party members, Norgen Wilson, Glen Phillip, Earle Asim Martin and several supporters danced their way through East Basseterre to the Old Girl School for Liburd to be nominated.
Joining the Labour party representatives was a large crowd of supporters from the constituency, and several from neighboring constituencies provided support to the only female candidate in the political race for office in 2015.
Speaking with the media shortly after taking the oath from the returning officer, Liburd expressed pleasure in completing the nomination process.
“I’m happy that the nomination process is over. It has been a long campaign, so I’m happy to see that it is coming to an end,” she disclosed.
Further, she expressed her confidence in retaining the seat that she won comprehensively back in the 2010 general election.
“Well you know, we have our meeting at the circus today, and we are just going to make sure that we remain on a high on the streets, knock on every door to ensure that we take home this victory for labour. I’m very confident of the victory for the people of St. Kitts and Nevis,” Liburd explained.
This time around, she will face stiff competition from the young lawyer in the Peoples Action Movement camp who is also confident of unseating Liburd in the 16th February elections.
