Deputy Prime Minister and Parliamentary Representative for St. Christopher Five, the Honourable Shawn Richards, said the Team Unity Administration prides itself on its all inclusive approach to national development, taking into account the views and concerns of all, regardless of their political affiliation.
He added, “This Team Unity Government cannot afford to leave out anyone. The PAM supporters, we cannot afford to leave them out; those who support Labour and of course are ready to come over, we have not and we will not leave them out. The PLP supporters they cannot be left out, and similarly, the CCM supporters cannot be left out because Unity is about all of the people of St. Kitts.”
The Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris, agreed with the remarks expressed by Minister Richards, noting that, “Team Unity is a special movement of people. What is important and impactful was that we break with an ancient history to create something new and something beautiful, which we are living and we are experiencing today.”
