Today, PAM Leader Lindsay Grant sent an email to Kittitians and Nevisians calling on citizens to join him in calling for debates in the Federation. He launched an open letter on PAM’s website calling for debates and asked Kittitians and Nevisians to join him in signing the letter. In his letter to the Federation, Grant issued the call for debates, “It’s time for Denzil Douglas to defend his failed policies in a series of fair and open debates. It’s time for Denzil Douglas to tell us why a crime and murder crisis spiraled out of control under his watch. It’s time for Denzil Douglas to explain why he chose to undermine our Constitution and our democracy by trying to impose unfair and illegal constituency boundaries cynically designed to stack the deck in his favour. It’s time for a debate.”
Grant reinforced his readiness to talk about the vexing problems facing the Federation.
“I’m ready to talk about the crime and murder crisis that spiraled out of control under his watch. I’m ready to talk about his utter disrespect for the Constitution, the rule of law and our democracy. And, I’m ready to talk about the crushing national debt that ranks up there with Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe,” said Grant.
Grant noted in his email that earlier this year, Denzil Douglas said that a debate would be a “delight” and that he was “very open” to debating.
