St Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister, Dr Terrance Drew, held various essential discussions with the political leaders of the governing political party, Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) and the opposition Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) within the first week of assuming the post.

In a Tuesday interview with a local news channel, Prime Minister Drew said he had spoken with Premier Mark Brantley and NRP’s Dr Janice Daniel-George.

“I have talked with the Premier of Nevis and Leader of the NRP and told the Premier that the administration must resolve the issues with Nevis.”

The Prime Minister assured, “I am taking that very seriously.”

Further, he said, “I will sit with the Premier of Nevis, find a way to hammer out the challenging issues of CBI revenue and aspects of the Constitution (of St Kitts and Nevis) that need to be dealt with.”

He said so to ensure that the two islands can have a better relationship and that these matters don’t arise again.

The Charlestown Accord signed in 2014 between the leaders of the  PLP,  PAM and CCM was also discussed in the meetings.

“I know they had the Charlestown Accord, but we see people weren’t respecting it, saying it is not worth anything, so anything we do has to be done in a legislative framework that will have the strength to survive, and that is how I think we have to move, but I am committed to resolving these issues and where there are inequities or sense of mistreatment or not be given a fair share, we have to deal with those issues so that St. Kitts feels satisfied and Nevis feels satisfied,” said Prime Minister Drew.

Prime Minister Drew said the discussion also brushed on the issue of budgetary support to the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) to ensure that the allotments are impartial and equitable.

He said he also discussed this with the Leader of the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP), Dr Janice Daniel-Hodge.

The Mission Is Clear, We Will Fight! – NevisPages.com

Published

Kraigg Brathwaite is very clear what the team’s goal for West Indies on Sunday’s final day of the opening Test against Australia. He reiterated what he said at the start of the journey – the need for a measured approach and to fight to the very end.

Brathwaite, who celebrated his 30th birthday on Wednesday, will resume on an unbeaten 101 – his 11th Test hundred top follow-up a top score of 64 in the first innings. He added 116 for the first wicket with debutant Tagenarine Chanderpaul making a solid 45, to follow up his 51 in the first innings.

West indies have played unbeaten all year – with three wins and two draws in their five previous Tests and will look to maintain that good record when they resume Sunday on 192-3 – after being set a target of 498.

“The first hour is crucial – we don’t want to think too far ahead. We will go hour by hour and obviously, we assess. As I said, the first hour and first session are very crucial. Australia are going to come hard so it’s obviously important we start extremely well,” Brathwaite said.

“We’re not thinking too far ahead. We just want to take it each hour and fight each hour and that’s very crucial for us. “The pitch is still a good pitch. There are some areas obviously … where one or two are keeping a little low so it’s always important to keep as straight a bat as possible. “But [there’s] a bit of spin as well so possibly tomorrow some cracks will open up a little bit more so it won’t be easy tomorrow. But as I said from the beginning, we’ve got to show that fight and it starts from ball one tomorrow and I believe once we do that, we’ll have a good day.”
Brathwaite has so far faced 168 balls in a shade over 4-½ hours and counted 11 fours – mainly crisp drives down the ground. During the knock, he reached the milestone of 5,000 runs in Tests – the 13th West Indies player to achieve the landmark – and also edged ahead of the legendary George Headley on the list of century-makers. The hundred was also Brathwaite’s first against Australia and second in six Tests this year, following his epic match-saving 160 against England at Kensington Oval in March.

“Australia was going to be a tough place for batting and to do it (score a hundred), it really meant a lot. Obviously, Australia is number one so this is obviously up there and meant a lot to me,” he said. “For me as the leader, I just want to lead from the front and obviously as an opening batsman, it’s always good to build that foundation. So I know once I do that, it makes it easier for the batsmen to come, so that’s always my focus – spend as much time out there as possible so it makes it easier for the guys to come, and that’s all I focus on.”

Peru Congress Backs Motion to Start 3rd Impeachment Attempt Against Castillo

LIMA, Dec 1 (Reuters) – Peru’s Congress approved on Thursday a motion initiated by opposition lawmakers to start impeachment proceedings against President Pedro Castillo, the third formal attempt to oust the leftist leader since he took office last year.

With 73 votes in favor, 32 against and six abstentions, Congress approved the process and summoned Castillo to respond to accusations of constitutional breaches on Dec. 7.

Earlier on Thursday, a high-level mission of the Organization of American States (OAS) recommended a “political truce” between Peru’s executive and legislative branches, as it delivered its preliminary report on a visit to the Andean country in late November.

To oust the president, the votes of 87 of the 130 members of Congress are needed, a number Peru’s right-wing opposition parties hope to reach.

Before the vote, Prime Minister Betssy Chavez said Castillo should serve his term until 2026 and the truce and dialogue requested by the OAS “is vital when we have somewhat tense spirits between both branches of government.”

The South American country lives is plagued by political confrontation between the two braches, and has, including Castillo, had five acting presidents since 2016, due to dismissals and resignations.

Castillo, accused of using the presidency to the benefit of himself, his family and close allies, is also facing a constitutional complaint from the attorney general in Congress linked to corruption investigations.

The president says the complaint is an attempted “coup d’etat” orchestrated by the prosecutor’s office and Congress.

PM Mottley among Financial Times’ 25 most influential women of 2022 – NevisPages.com

Published

SOURCE: The Financial TIMES — Prime Minister Mia Mottley has been featured among the Financial Times’ 25 most influential women of 2022.

The list also includes Ketanji Brown Jackson, US Supreme Court Justice; Francia Elena Márquez Mina, Vice-President of Colombia; Sherry Rehman, Climate Minister in Pakistan; Serena Williams, Tennis player; and Tsitsi Dangarembga, author and activist.

The magazine says its Women of the Year issue reaffirms every December that influence comes in many forms, by exploring achievement across cultures, industries and artistries.
“For 2022, we again commissioned entries by some of the world’s most powerful women. But we also sought contributors who could speak to their subject’s influence in diverse, even unexpected dimensions,” the magazine said.
In January, after Mottley won a landslide re-election victory, she told the Financial Times that she believed in “moral strategic leadership”.

That is apparent in everything she does, making her one of the most formidable leaders of her generation.
A lawyer who trained at the London School of Economics, Mottley won her first political seat at the age of 28.
At COP26 she made clear that the failure of industrialised states to meaningfully invest to halt climate change was catastrophic for the planet. Her speech was as inspiring as it was humbling, and citizens globally were gripped.
This year her “Bridgetown Agenda” to reform the international financial system offers real, practical solutions. Her ability to speak truth to power is also apparent at home, where she oversaw the birth of Barbados as a republic, leaving its colonial past behind.

Mottley expects this term as premier to be her last; whatever she does next, the world is lucky to have her.
