The Hon.

Mr.Hector noted that an elemental error in operations, “could only have occurred because of heavy political pressure for CCM on the eve of the 2017 local election on Nevis”.
He went on to state that the Nevis Reformation Party, “the caring party” urge that the Concerned Citizens Movement led Administration assists all affected workers with the following recommendations:
A 75% discount on water and electricity bills.
Forgiveness of property taxes, renewal fees, and drivers licenses.
