Basseterre, St. Kitts, January 1, 2018 – Leader of the Opposition, the Right Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas has extended congratulations to the new Premier of Nevis and praised the stellar leadership of the outgoing leader of the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP).
“ I wish at this time to extend words of congratulations to the Concerned Citizens Movement for emerging the victors of the recently contested Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Elections. I also wish to congratulate the new leader of the CCM and Premier of Nevis, Hon. Mark Brantley, and wish him success in the term ahead,” said Dr. Douglas in his 2018 New Year Message.
Dr. Douglas also used the opportunity to recognize the service of former CCM Leader and former premier, Hon. Vance Amory.
“The former leader of the CCM, Hon. Vance Amory, must also be recognised for his years of leadership and service that he dedicated to the people of Nevis. As a founding member of the CCM, his legacy is sure to live on through the works of the party’s new leadership,” said Dr. Douglas.
He expressed words of solidarity to Hon. Joseph Parry, the outgoing leader of the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP).
“Mr. Parry’s conviction as a Nevisian and a politician is among the strongest that I know. He stood for ageless principles that are critical to the integrity of our societies. I thank him most graciously for his many years of service and the extensive contribution to the overall development of Nevis and the Federation on a whole. May his legacy live on and serve as an immortal example of stellar leadership and citizenship,” said Dr. Douglas.
