Dr. Timothy Harris concedes defeat

21

STATEMENT: Now that the Supervisor of Elections, Mr. Elvin Bailey, has announced the official results of the General Elections held yesterday, Friday, August 5th 2022, I take this opportunity to congratulate the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party on their victory at the polls, in which they captured six (6) of the eight (8) seats on St. Kitts.

In particular, I congratulate Prime Minister-elect, Dr. Terrance Drew of the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party and extend best wishes to him on his new journey of leadership of our beloved Federation.

I congratulate as well all the other successful candidates in the General Elections and wish them the very best.

I cannot end a speech of this nature without thanking the seven (7) other candidates constituting the slate of the People’s Labour Party.

I am indeed proud of the clean and decent manner in which you put yourself forward to the electorate for leadership of our Federation.

I was indeed honoured to serve as your party leader going into the General Election, for which we sought to represent the best interests of the people of our fair Land.

On that score, I take this opportunity to sincerely thank the people of Constituency #7 for reposing their continued confidence in me, by returning me to Parliament once more, to represent their best interests.

My privilege in representing you is something that I have never taken for granted and neither will I take that sacred trust for granted in the future.

Finally, I wish to express my gratitude to the members, supporters and well-wishers of the People’s Labour Party and appeal to you to accept the results of the General Elections.

Our Country must now move on in a manner that ensures that the will of the people is preserved.

May God bless the people of St. Kitts and Nevis and cover us with His hand of protection.

  1. My people what you are witnessing here is not a matter of chance it is via divinity. Remember the mantra which the UPP believes in ie the voice of the people is the voice of GOD. Well people the fact that throughout the region we are witnessing the rise of the labor party is testimony to the fact that we have to vote ABLP the next election. It is one thing to disappoint man but please don’t go against the will of GOD.

    • @ Just Saying, you know what comes to mind when you talk like this?

      “Straws” and “clutching” boss!

      However, much respect for your generational support for the ABLP and in particular Gaston Browne.

    • JUST SAYING I know in the past you have said some crazy, nonsensical things, but to say that one should vote for the ALP because it is the will of God is the worst I have heard coming from you. I believe you have really lost it this time and not even your blind, sycophantic allegiance to the ALP can justify that statement.

    • Yes, it must be your god, not God, because God does not like his children suffering even as he fed thousands with the loaves and fish, unlike Gaston who does not give a dam about poor, hungry and destitute people……no relief for Covid, no relief for Cost of Living, no relief for Gas, just sky rocketing prices and pain at the supermarket till….

      Only minions like you will want this suffering to continue, and you have the mitigated gall to talk about returning the ABLP and the TEAR-GAS-SING GASTON TO POWER?
      USEFUL IDIOT

    • I am confused, wasn’t it another “Labour” party that lost. I guess that you are saying that “God” isn’t taking any chances. “LABOUR ALL THE WAY” even if it’s a different labour party. Could someone help it make sense to me?

  2. Labour Party in St.kitts is not the same as in Antigua don’t be foolish putting this one back in power 2 terms is sufficient let’s vote them put. This party is Gaston party this one doesn’t care for the people. All the senior members are quiet and afraid to talk when them see wrong he control them like they under a spell. Let’s break the spell

  3. Here’s hoping that Gaston Browne will be just as magnanimous in defeat at the next General Election, and will leave some public money in the coffers for the next incumbent to restore ABLP’s economic mismanagement.

    I have a STRONG feeling that there’ll be nothing left by the ABLP for the UPP to help the country recovery.

    REMEMBER YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST …

    • You sound like an idiot- Antigua and Barbuda is 10 times better than when UPP was in power- Clown Harold Lovell couldn’t pay Regular Government Wages and Salaries on time for 4 years – it was Tanny Rose that was on the radio weekly telling public works weekly workers slthey say not this week- ministry workers were paying mortgage late because Salaries were constantly late- who y’all tryingto fool? We were here

      • Stop living in the past @ Slow talker, remember it’s now 2022, and your beloved ABLP and Gaston Browne has now been in power for almost terms, and the citizens of Antigua have not seen any benefits or progress in their lives or the country.

        I WON’T CALL YOU A FOOL, BUT DELUDED DEFINITELY COMES TO MIND …

      • YOU MUST BE OUT OF YOUR COTTON PICKING MIND.
        THIS COUNTRY HAS NEVER SEEN SO MUCH HARDSHIP, POVERTY AND HUNGER AS UNDER GASTON BROWN.
        PEOPLE CAN’T BUY FOOD, GAS, AND THE BARE NECESSITIES FOR LIFE, EXCEPT YOU THE MINIONS AND USEFUL IDIOTS THAT DRINK FROM THE TROUGH.
        YOU GUYS ARE FIGHTING SO VIGOROUSLY SO THAT YOU DO NOT LOSE THE HANDOUTS THAT THE PM GIVE Y’ALL TO SPEW YOUR GARBAGE.

  4. It’s only now you all know about “defeat for everyone involved”?

    When you all “few comrades and jumpers” was gulping at the public trough, you all did not know about “everyone”?

    Go to hell and burn forever.

  5. Please take note that the last 3 elections in the Caribbean, the incumbents have lost. Don’t be surprised Barbados Labor Party doesn’t survive after that snap election.

    • I noted that as well. I’m not sure of the real reasons, but two come to mind:

      Firstly, a lot of manifesto promises were made and not fulfilled by the previous incumbents, and the cost of living has gone through the roof – thus creating/making a survival of the fittest a must for their citizens.

      Secondly (and there could be more substance to this), all the previous leaders were at the forefront of the vaccination programmes that have now been proven to be misleading, and the electorate wanted them gone.

      People lost their jobs, homes, got adverse reactions from the vaccines, and sadly lost loved ones.

      MAYBE IT’S A COMBINATION OF THE TWO!
