Be patriotic for the sake of our country and our children

All around the country people tell us that the ULP is useless. They do not have the ability to move our country forward. The ULP’s failure to bring prosperity to our people after 14 years in office is a major concern for the public.

The ULP regime is financially and economically incompetent and allows the injustice of Taiwan and the super-rich of Mustique and Canouan to not pay tax. The ULP regime has been reckless with taxpayers’ money and devastated our economy. Gonsalves’ hopeless leadership has mashed up our country and increased poverty and squalor.

We are at a pivotal time for country. For the sake of our country and our children, a change of government is needed. This is a time for the people of our country to show their true patriotism and vote for a change a government. We cannot let the ULP regime to continue to sell off our country to foreigners and plunge our country further in to debt and poverty.

We need some new people in the House of Assembly to move our country forward. The SVG Parliament needs new ideas and new competencies and we need to modernise. The ULP regime is stale, its policies have failed and their approach is outdated.

For the sake of our country and our children, we are calling on SVG Green Party supporters to vote NDP in the constituencies that do not have a Green candidate. Equally so, SVG Green Party is calling on NDP supporters, to vote SVG Green Party in the constituencies where there are Green candidates.

We must be patriotic and put our country first. We must work together to rid the nation of the incompetence which has blighted our people for 14 years. We must remove the grossly incompetent ULP regime. The power is in your hands to bring the change our country needs.

The ULP offer nothing different in this election, nothing new to create sustainable sources of revenue and new jobs. The ULP regime will continue to waste millions more on Argyle airport, will continue to allow the super-rich foreigners of Mustique and Canouan to not pay tax and customs duties, and will continue to allow Taiwan to use SVG’s tuna fishing licence and make billions of dollars, whilst our people get nothing.

The only way to get real change in SVG is to vote for something different. This is why we urge you to show true patriotism and bring new blood to the SVG House of Assembly. Our country needs to move away from the Gonsalves’ mentality of begging and borrowing and dead-end projects that create no revenue.

SVG Green Party has the ideas and the ability to create a strong economy and thousands of new jobs. We pledge to build factories for agro-processing, tax the super-rich foreigners of Mustique and Canouan, take back our fish licence from Taiwan and set up a tuna fishing and canning industry and build a university.

We pledge also, to make education free from preschool to university, build a new hospital in Kingstown and Union Island, build a secondary school in Canouan, make Rabacca sand free again, cut the price of water and electricity, revitalise banana and other areas of agriculture, abolish VAT and bring free internet access.

In February, this year, the people of St. Kitts and Nevis showed true patriotism and worked together to bring their people a new future, a brighter future. The opposition parties worked together and removed a government that had been failing for years. The Labour Party was defeated.

We know from their experience that being patriotic works – together, we can change the government. We must show courage and follow the example of the people of St. Kitts and Nevis and usher in a new era of good governance and turnaround the country’s declining socio-economic condition.

For the sake of our country and our children, vote for new blood, new future, new beginnings.
