Yesterday, St. Kitts and Nevis media house, WINN FM received a response from the St. Kitts Prime Minister.
“The allegations are totally false and mischievous, and it appears that having been unsuccessful in their relaunch, [St. Kitts-Nevis] Labour Party is attempting to find an excuse. I want to make it very clear—the Minister came here, was greeted by government officials and driven to the Marriott where he stayed.

Michael Browne was the featured speaker for the unveiling of the St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party candidate, Leon Natta-Nelson, who will be challenging Prime Minister Harris to become the parliamentary representative for St. Christopher 7.
