PM and Premier
ST. KITTS, JANUARY 17TH 2011 (CUOPM) – The working relationship between the Federal Government headed by St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas and the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) led by the Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry is being credited for the significant strides in the social, economical and developmental of the island of Nevis.
Prime Minister Douglas, Premier Parry and featured speaker, former United States Senator, Nevis-born the Hon. Roosevelt David made the point at last Saturday’s Gala Dinner in honour of the Nevisian leader.
Invited to raise a toast to Premier Parry, who Nevisians have dubbed “The Miracle Man,” Prime Minister Douglas noted that he has been in office for the last 16 years “there has been in the last nearly five years a particular relationship that I had never experience before as Prime Minister of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. I say it really from my heart. I do not intend to get involved in the local politics, but I must express myself truthfully as I do, at all times.”
Dr. Douglas emphasized that “under leadership of Joseph Parry, unlike (previously) where there had been on occasion’s uncertainty, where there might have been strife and division, under his leadership, there is definitely a positive feeling for the future.”
“Harmony and unity are terms which I would like to describe the relationship that exists today between the Nevis Island Administration and the Federal government,” said Dr. Douglas to the thunderous applause of the large gathering at the Four Seasons Ballroom.
