St Kitts-Nevis PM afraid of losing election, says former deputy

BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WINN) -- Former St Kitts and Nevis deputy prime minister Sam Condor says Prime Minister Denzil Douglas has so far shied away from calling a general election because he is fearful of being defeated by the opposition alliance Team Unity.

Given the existing motion of no confidence stalemate in St Kitts and Nevis, there are those who thought a general election would have been called by now.

Douglas said recently that the constituency boundary changes matter that is before the courts is in part responsible for the delay in his calling the election.

However, speaking at a public meeting on the Team Unity platform on Friday night, Condor suggested that there are more telling reasons why the bell has not yet been rung.

“Don’t care what you hear him saying. It cannot be much longer now. In fact, Douglas would’ve liked to have gone to elections before, in fact he had plans to go to elections long time ago… but all the polls…have said to him, he’s going to lose and he believe his best chances are waiting for time,” Condor claimed.

“But time can’t help him. The longer he stay, the worse it is for him… and I could tell you, because that is all I’m hearing around this country and around the region… so Douglas can’t be a happy man.”

Team Unity’s Condor told opposition supporters at Friday’s public meeting that the opposition would continue to exercise patience under trying circumstances.

“He wants us to become agitated and to do foolish things, but we are as patient as it comes. It can’t be long now, anytime now… this country will be relieved of the suffering of Denzil Douglas and company. And I am happy, very, very happy. I am comfortable, because I know what people are saying to me, and I’m sure they’re saying the same thing to all of you. People are waiting,” Condor told supporters.

What a disgraceful individual, friend of the SVG PM, wants to be a dictator for life just like all the rest of the current Caribbean Marxist scum, under the influence of Cuba and Venezuela.

Best to send him to Cuba on a holiday and then strip him of his citizenship and not allow him to return.
