ZIZ News — Former Premier of Nevis and Leader of the Nevis Reformation Party [NRP], the Honourable Joseph Parry, said the Concerned Citizens Movement [CCM] is suffering from a management problem, a policy making problem and an implementation problem.
Parry was at the time speaking with Vybes Fm’s Cris Collins about the state of affairs in Nevis since the Vance Amory led CCM administration assumed power in January 2013.
According to the former premier, the Honourable Vance Amory is unable to effectively govern the affairs of Nevis.
“I don’t think Mr. Amory is able any longer, I don’t know if he ever was, to give direction and leadership to a country from an economic point of view and certainly Mr. Brantley is totally ignorant and I’m not over-exaggerating here. I’m not exaggerating and I’m not over-exaggerating. He is totally ignorant of economic matters and matters to do with government. So what these two men really needed were strong permanent secretaries who had experience and who understood how to run government,” he explained.
Parry then accused the CCM-led Nevis Island Administration of preventing the NRP from contributing to the development of Nevis.
He said, “They blocked us in so many ways. I don’t want to throw you off from the point you were leading up to but they have blocked us in so many ways. They have reported us to the U.S. Embassy in Barbados, they reported us to Washington and asked Washington not to support us because there was a little argument I had here with the cable TV operator who wanted to introduce rates without any discussion with government. They did everything to lock us down stock and barrel and now, we not behaving like they did and they seem unable to fly.”
