St Kitts-Nevis cabinet concerned about PM in 2000, says former deputy

BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WINN) -- Former deputy prime minister Sam Condor has suggested that the members of the Denzil Douglas administration in Saint Kitts and Nevis had previous concerns about his leadership.

Former Deputy Prime Minister Sam Condor
Condor said on Friday that, in 2000, while a member of the government, he and other cabinet members had warned of filing a motion of no confidence in him because of concerns they had about his leadership.

Condor said Douglas responded by claiming he would dissolve parliament if a motion were filed against him.

A motion of no confidence in the government was eventually filed in December 2012 but has still not been heard in the National Assembly despite a high court ruling stipulating that there was no impediment in the speaker of the house tabling the motion.

Opposition MPs and two former senior members of the government have publicly indicated their support of the motion and have formed a unity coalition to challenge the Labour Party in the next general elections.
