Churches call for Vote of No Confidence in Parliament

ZIZ Newsroom, Basseterre, February 4, 2013: Two religious bodies in St.Kitts are calling on the prime minister to bring the motion for the vote of no confidence before parliament.
In an open letter to the prime minister the St.Kitts Christian Council and the St.Kitts Evangelical Association say recent developments have heightened political tension in the nation.
These include the resignation of Hon Sam Condor and the passage of the Senators Bill.
The organizations say they believe the nation is facing a serious political crisis.
So, according to the letter, they are calling on the prime minister to bring to national assembly and have debated the motion of no confidence before any other business is brought to the parliament.
A few days ago the Chamber of Industry and Commerce made a similar request.
The prime minister told ZIZ that the motion is before the clerk and that it now needs to be put on the order paper.
He says it is up to those who brought the motion to the clerk to be responsible for bringing it to parliament for debate.
