St Kitts (WINN) — The opposition leader in St Vincent and the Grenadines has written formally to Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves asking him to intervene in the no motion confidence stalemate in St Kitts and Nevis.

Opposition leader Arnhim Eustace made reference to what he described as the refusal of the Speaker of the House of Assembly and the government in Basseterre to table for debate the motion filed by the parliamentary opposition last year December.

Eustace said that it was “patently unacceptable” that Prime Minister Denzil Douglas was taking action to present a Boundaries Commission report to parliament at a time when he does not have majority of elected parliamentarians backing him.

The Vincentian opposition leader said it is on no mean significance that of the eleven elected representatives in the parliament in Basseterre, that six now constitute the opposition and therefore the arithmetical and constitutional majority for the purposes of a vote of no confidence.

Prior to penning his concerns in the letter to Gonsalves, Eustace told Winn FM in late July that the loud silence from OECS and CARICOM heads of government

on the St Kitts and Nevis political crisis was not serving democracy well.
