NRP Leader: Fair Share For Nevis Requires More Effective Negotiation With The Federal Government

By Devonne Cornelius

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Leader of the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP), Dr. Janice Daniel-Hodge, a guest on the weekday radio program “Voices” on WinnFM on Friday, October 02, 2020, took the opportunity to share her plans and ideas for Nevis and the NRP.

Dr. Daniel- Hodge said her aim is to try and refocus the shared vision for the party.

” We are also looking at the candidates’ selection for the upcoming [2022 Nevis Island Assembly] elections and the intent is really to create new energy and a vibrant movement essentially to put Nevis first in our decisions, we must be able to present a brighter future for the youths of this country, ” Dr. Danile -Hodge told WINN.

The NRP leader further stated that the party was formed to address the needs of the people of Nevis adding that “the people of Nevis were really at the center of NRP, and I think along the way, maybe, we would have shifted a bit with regards to where our vision and where our focus as a party, lie. And so, one of the first things that we are trying to do, as a party, is to really make sure that we put people, the people of Nevis at the center of NRP and so all of our actions, as party members, must be really guided by what is really in the best interest of Nevis and Nevisians”.

Dr. Daniel- Hodge also spoke to issues pertaining to the Nevis and the NRP. A caller posed the question to the NRP leader in regards to NRP’s alignment with political parties on St. Kitts as the party, in the past, had a relationship with the People’s Action Movement (PAM) and the St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP).

Dr. Daniel- Hodge said “NRP was born out of the need to enhance lives and livelihoods of Nevisians and so that is the focus and so that is really the focus of NRP and would the focus of NRP in the NIA. Now with regards to being aligned with a political party in St. Kitts, this is where a concern seems to be present, however; the NIA must work with whoever is in the federal government”.

The NRP leader commented on the matter with regards to the CBI stating that there needs to be more effective negotiation for Nevis’ fair share of the revenue adding that this process must take place with the best interest of Nevis and Nevisians.
