SKNLP Re-Elects Dr Douglas As Party Leader, Marcella Liburd Is His Deputy



The opposition St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party has re-elected Dr. Denzil Douglas, constituency representative of Constituency #6, as party leader while electing its first woman deputy leader in Marcella Liburd, the constituency Representative for Constituency #2.

Dr. Terrance Drew is elected Chairman of the party, Meshach Alford is the Deputy National Chairman, Diana Williams (National Secretary), Shavon Douglas is the Treasurer, Karen Crossman Assistant Secretary, Dr. Marcus Natta, elected member; Javon Liburd, elected member, Thamesha Fyfield, elected member.

At the SKNLP’s national conference held Sunday at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort on St. Kitts, Opposition Leader Dr. Denzil Douglas urged supporters to rally behind the Labour Party.

“There is nothing that can extinguish our energy, nothing at all that can extinguish our passion and our zeal. Today we gather despite the dark cloud hovering over our great nation. We are gathering at a time when the national interest has been gravely compromised and the international standing and profile of our country is under serious threat. And this could be cause for concern for not only just our delegates, our supporters, members and friends who are gathered here in this hall but also for every citizen of our proud federation of St Kitts and Nevis.”

Dr. Douglas described the three years of the Team Unity Administration as three difficult scandal-ridden years.

“We must, therefore, comrades, we must fight the Prime Minister and his coalition government. We must fight the greed we must fight the corruption, we must fight the nepotism and the vindictiveness. We must fight the deception and the national embarrassment that has been caused by this coalition. I speak for those who are present and for those who are listening from across our federation and within the diaspora that we are dismayed by the disgrace that has befallen this esteemed office of the Prime Minister and by extension our progressive nation. We are fed up, fed up with the scandal, scandal after scandal that has embattled and denigrated our poor nation. We are fed up of the failed policies of Harris and his coalition administration.”

He said the SKNLP is the only party with true compassion for the people.

“When we look at the corrupt and the repressive Team Unity regime and all the plotting, all the manoeuvring and calculated scheming they have undertaken since coming into office, it should be no surprise, no surprise at all that our democracy and life as we knew it are under attack because it is their nature, it is the nature of the beast. I for one can tell you that Harris cannot help, I told you so. It was 18 years that he served in my cabinet, I told you so. You know somebody said he’s a sick man. He who is he is, he cannot do any better.”
