Confident of victory
CHARLESTOWN, Nevis, Jan 21, CMC – Premier Joseph Parry says his ruling Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) will win four of the five seats at stake in Tuesday’s Nevis Island Administration( NIA) even as his challenger, the Concerned Citizens Movement, (CCM) said it too was confident of taking control of the legislative body.
“We are satisfied that we have taken the national debate to the nation and there are five seats being contested and I expect to take four seats comfortably,” Parry told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC).
He said that the population had been aware of the party’s position for more than six months.
“We had signal to the public very early it would be a national poll if the court ruled in a particular way...and we have been working ever since,” Parry said, adding “the only concern I have is that the opposition might misbehave.
“They have failed to put together a good campaign, they are not very visible and I believe they have not debated like we have debated, they seem to be having difficulty coming up with a plan. They have spent so much time in court.”
