BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WINN) -- The parliamentary opposition in St Vincent and the Grenadines intends to make a statement at the upcoming OECS Assembly, on the motion of no confidence stalemate in St Kitts and Nevis.

That has been confirmed by opposition leader Arnhim Eustace, who said that he expects opposition representatives from the federation to raise the matter at next week’s assembly in Antigua.
“I am expecting St Kitts to raise it and I will have my say,” Eustace told WINN FM.
The Vincentian opposition leader is again criticizing regional heads he says are shying away from helping resolve the political crisis in Basseterre.
“I believe we are close enough as a region, where two or three heads of the OECS could get together with the prime minister of St Kitts and bring a resolution to this matter,” the Vincentian opposition leader said.
He added that he was not recommending intervention or “criticizing and cussing”, but an informal setting where the issues could be thrashed out.
“It doesn't speak well for parliamentary democracy which we claim to support so strongly if we can’t even get together in an informal meeting,” Eustace added.
Opposition MPs in Basseterre say they are discussing the possibility of raising the motion stalemate issue at the OECS Assembly next week.
