Saturday, June 18th saw PLP, the fastest growing party in the Caribbean, launch its candidates across all constituencies for the forthcoming elections.
The candidates all possess an impressive breadth and range of experience that will be vital to take the country forward, particularly at a critical point in time where the impact of COVID has created shock waves around the world.
Under the sound, wise and stable leadership of Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris, St Kitts and Nevis stands head and shoulders above many countries because he expertly navigated the choppy waters of a global crisis and ensured that the Federation remained a stable, vibrant economy; opening its doors when it was safe to do so and more importantly ensuring that the mortality rate was one of the lowest in the world. This is no mean feat and deserves recognition.
This sound wisdom has been deployed in the selection of some of the most vibrant, capable and inspiring candidates, selected to ensure that the country continues to go from strength to strength, and is able to realise the ambitions of the Peoples Labour Party to establish a secure future for the people and the nation.
Growing the economy, protecting people and creating more jobs lies at the heart of the manifesto and each candidate has been selected not only for their talents but because they too have been ambitious, have striven and know the importance of genuinely meeting the needs of the people.
Prime Minister Harris said:
“The people of St Kitts deserve only the best. They deserve people of integrity to represent them, people who put people first and people who will grow the economy, deliver jobs and create the right environment for people to thrive. I am proud to say that all of the PLP candidates can be trusted to deliver.”
