The People’s Action Movement (PAM) is taking their quest for ‘a fair, credible, and democratic electoral process’ one step further by seeking assistance from the CARICOM government head responsible for justice and governance.
PAM released a statement on Thursday to inform the public that they had written to Hon. Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and copied it to all heads of CARICOM outlining their issues with the electoral reform process currently underway in St. Kitts.
PAM, the leading political Opposition, has maintained that any identification card issued that can be used for election purposes should include the voter’s fingerprint.
The party organised a march ‘for democracy’ recently, in support of this view. The march was heralded by some as one of the largest political demonstrations in recent times.
The issued statement continued to say that the aim of the communication ‘is to maintain a high pubic profile within the Federation about Electoral Reform’.
PAM requested that the concerns raised in this process be placed on the agenda of the upcoming meeting of the Association of Commonwealth Caribbean Parliamentarians to be held in St. Kitts.
