“ Indeed there is no doubt that the people of your beloved country, that you have had the honour to lead since assuming the position of Head of Government, have reposed the confidence in you to take them through yet another term. Under your able leadership, they have weathered the difficult years of economic decline and sense, with optimistic anticipation, the hope of a more promising and hopeful future of improved social and economic development.

“You can be assured of the continued support of St. Kitts and Nevis as we work collaboratively to strengthen our bilateral and regional relations. Notwithstanding the current global economic downturn, let us remain steadfast in our commitment to confront the many challenges that lie ahead for the betterment of our peoples and our nations.

“ Please accept, Esteemed Colleague, the blessings of the Almighty for this Christmas Season and the New Year as you embark on your third term in office. “

Prime Minister, Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit has enjoyed warm relations with Dr. Denzil Douglas for many years. They have worked together at the level of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States.

The Dominica Labour Party has enjoyed warm and fraternal relations with the St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party for several decades. In the year 2000, the then Leader of the DLP and Prime Minister, Hon. Roosevelt Douglas appeared on the political platform of the St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party. (GIS press release)

    December 30, 2009

    I hope they don’t get thorn apart by conflicting interest; Taiwan or China, ALBA or BARABA; I just can’t figure ouT WHAT IS SO EXCITING about this OECS unity or agreement. I’ve hearing OECS unity since I was a little boy. Then there is CARICOM.- what the heck. We do have free movement, free trade and a joint currency; in fact we all drink from the same cup , we borough money from each others allotment at the ECB. All this hoop la is just another PIPE ORGAN – WASTE OF TAX PAYERS MONEY.

    Somebody pinch me – I am not yet excited.
