ST. KITTS, NOVEMBER 7, 2010 (CUOPM) – With the legal challenge to his election as the Parliamentary Representative for St. Christopher 4 behind him, Minister of Youth Empowerment, Sports, Information Technology, Telecommunications and Posts, Hon. Glenn Phillip, says he will now be able to concentrate on the continued transformation of St. Kitts and to Nevis.
Speaking at a press conference on Friday, following the decision of a High Court Judge on Thursday to completely strike out the legal challenge brought by his opponent, Mr. Lindsay Grant, the Political Leader of the People’s Action Movement, Mr. Phillip said “it has been a minor distraction.”
“With that out of the way, I will now be able to concentrate on some pressing issues I have been dealing with over the past several months including E-government services and the transformation of the post services,” he told journalists.
Mr. Phillip disclosed that he arrived to the press conference after visiting the Verchilds High School in the constituency which he represents, to discuss the establishment of a state of the art computer lab complete with full wireless service.
Responding to questions, he said a wide area network will be developed which will allow government ministries, departments and agencies to be integrated into a single system and voice and data network.
“Residents and other persons here and overseas will be able to access all government services on line and pay bills,” said Minister Phillip.
