Honourable Dr. Terrence Drew
The St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party
Basseterre, St. Kitts and Nevis
Dear Dr. Drew:
On behalf of the people and Government of Antigua and Barbuda, I express congratulations to the heritage Labour Party on your victory at the polls, during an intense and unrelenting struggle for supremacy.
The long historical ties between The St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party and the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party are well established and known.
The emergence of the trade unions and the political parties which they spawned, more than eight decades ago, cause our populations to invest their faith in Labour’s continued governance.
Despite interruptions from time-to-time, the Labour Movement throughout the Anglo Caribbean is fully established as a superior choice for leadership.
I express the applause of the entire nation of Antigua and Barbuda, and look forward to collaboration between our two states and governments in the regional and international issues which require joint action in the immediate future.
Please allow me to reiterate the assurances of my highest consideration and esteem.
Honourable Gaston Browne M.P.
St Kitts and Nevis Labour Party leader Dr Terrence Drew will be the new Prime Minister of the Federation after his party secured six of the eleven seats in Friday’s general elections. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATSAPP GROUP FOR NEWS UPDATES.
The Concerned Citizens Movement won all three seats in Nevis while the People’s Action Movement and People’s Labour Party each won a seat as their respective leaders, Shawn Richards and former Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris won their seats.
The result is a departure from the need for a coalition, which had been governing the Federation for the last seven years.
The elections were called three years ahead of the constitutional deadline after the collapse of the Team Unity Coalition of Dr Timothy Harris.
