(ZIZ News) — Constitutional reform is high on the agenda of the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party [SKNLP] and the Nevis Reformation Party [NRP].
That disclosure came during Thursday morning’s press conference and signing of the “Contract for Progress” between both parties.
The Nation’s Prime Minister and SKNLP leader, the Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil Douglas described the issue of constitutional reform as one of the main achievable things of the contract.
“There has been a lot been said with regard to our constitution. We speak of its imperfections and its perfections but whether or not it has imperfections or only perfections, we believe that any document that was framed 31 years ago to advance the lives of our people then of course from time to time it needs to be examined and that is exactly what we wish to emphasize as one of the important, specific proposals included in this document,” he explained.
Other notable features of the Contract for Progress are the expansion of the National Health Insurance Scheme; development of the financial services sector; expansion of youth rehabilitation programmes; the improvement or possibly construction of a new hospital on Nevis; expansion of the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College to include a campus on Nevis; support for small and medium enterprises; green energy and improvements in the tourism sector.
