Evelyn: I Will Bring It Home

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Concerned Citizens Movement candidate for Constituency #10 Eric Evelyn is arguing that the upcoming general elections will be fair despite the State of Emergency, which many are challenging.

“The constitution demands that an election has to be held, whether it’s in a state of emergency or not, an election has to be held. The fact is if the election was not called they would be criticizing it anyway, so you call it they will criticize it, if you don’t call it they will criticize. I think that is a party that doesn’t know what they want that’s a party that is in disarray. …I believe that the elections will be free and fair.”

Meanwhile, he is expressing optimism that the Nevis #10 seat will remain one of the blue seats coming out of the Federal Election on June 5.

“…I’m no stranger to anyone, I am known in the community, the community knows me, I know the people and I am running on a track record in community service before I got into government. I’m running on a track record of 32 unblemished years as a civil servant and I’m running on a track record of a little over two years in political and the achievements that have come as a result of me I’m running on a track record. …I will bring it home and bring it home handsomely.”

Evelyn will be coming up against a younger more youthful candidate, and he notes that it will not stop him from romping to victory in the Nevis #10 seat.

“He is young but he is not known in the community…I’m in touch with the young, I’m in touch with the seniors, I’m in touch with the in-between, unlike him. And so I can tell you that the young, the seniors, and the in-between they will be voting for me in overwhelming numbers.”

In the Federal Elections, Mr. Evelyn will be challenged by Nevis Reformation Party’s Bjorn Hanley.
