Vance Amory: A Job Well Done To Have Three Seats

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Former Premier and Federal Minister Vance Amory is speaking on the success of having three Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) ministers of government in St. Kitts.

While attending the swearing-in of the Parliamentarians, the former senior ministers said he is not going to take all the credit of getting the members election but rather it was a collective effort by the team.

“It was good over the years, that what we tried to do was to recruit good people. And personally, I worked very hard in all of the constituencies to ensure that the party was established.

“I think we got the support of the guys, and they recognized that it was not the first time we were trying to get all three seats. We have even tried to get all five seats in the local elections, and we only managed to get four, So we have been looking to consolidate the party and I think the party has lived up to its ‘Putting People First’” explained Amory.

Coming out of the June 5th General Elections, the Concerned Citizens Movement, of which he was once the leader, won the three seats on offer in Nevis.

In the process, the party took the coveted Nevis #11 seat which was once controlled by the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP).

Mr. Amory acknowledged that entering the new parliament and seeing the three local ministers at the federal level gave him a sense of accomplishment.

“I feel good about it and I just trust that this thing continues strongly for the people of St. Kitts and Nevis… It is a good thing, something that we worked for over the years and especially when we decided that we were going to join the Unity Construct. We recognized that the only way to have gotten rid of…Dr. Douglas,” he added.

Amory was the Federal Minister of Labour and Ecclesiastical and Nevis Affairs.

The former premier spent more than three decades in the political arena before calling it quits at the end of the last political cycle.
