St. Kitts Citizens Still In The Dark With Blackouts
Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis

Leader of the People’s Action Movement Lindsay Grant has called on the Denzil Douglas administration to call early general elections, saying the government does not have the answers to the ongoing power crisis here.
Mr Grant, speaking here at a press conference Tuesday, said that the country’s economy has been undermined by weeks of load-shedding, and power cuts that have continued even after the government announced last week that the problem was solved.
There were a series of power outages on the weekend, but officials blamed those on what was described as a feeder fault.
“Ten years and millions of dollars later, the fumbling Denzil Douglas regime has no final solution for this nation’s power crisis,” Grant declared.
St Kitts has had problems with an unreliable power supply since it bought new generators in 1999.
