BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, February 19, 2018 (Press Unit in the Office of the Prime Minister) – Citizens and residents will once again be given the opportunity to interact directly with leaders of the St. Kitts and Nevis Government when the Team Unity Administration launches its town hall series dubbed, “The People’s Forum,” on Tuesday, February 20.
The first in the series of town hall meetings will be held at the Newtown Community Centre, starting at 7:30pm.
While the full Cabinet of Ministers is expected to be in attendance, the main presentations at Tuesday’s meeting will be made by Deputy Prime Minister, the Honourable Shawn Richards; Minister of Public Infrastructure, Post, Urban Development and Transport, the Honourable Ian Patches Liburd and from Prime Minister Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris.
Speaking on the Thursday, February 15 edition of “Frank and Candid” on ZIZ Radio with host Newrish Nital, Prime Minister Harris said it is important for representatives to engage with constituents at the community level.
“We want our representatives to really be at their very best and you can’t do it without engagement with the people. There are going to be difficult issues and there are going to be some issues which make you laugh when you leave from interacting with your constituents,” Prime Minister Harris said.
The town hall meeting will be carried live on ZIZ Television (Channel 5), ZIZ Radio (95.9, 96.1 and 96.9 FM) and streamed at www.zizonline.com.
Those unable to attend and those living in the Diaspora who wish to be a part of the town hall meeting are invited to email their questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call-in with their questions, concerns or views when the floor is open.
The second town hall meeting in the series is scheduled for Tuesday, February 27, 2018 in Molineux.
