The St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party is prepared to be held accountable for our actions and decisions. To this end we have adopted the historic Cod of Ethical Conduct by all executive members on December 8, 2018. “The good we can do” is Labour’s defining and driving motto. “Good governance” begins with the election of “good people” as constituency representatives and the selection of “good people” as appointed Ministers. Labour’s stewardship will be directed to the needs and interest of all and not just the favoured few. Labour is ready to replace elitism with inclusiveness and benefits for all. We will establish a Commission to review the constitution of St. Kitts & Nevis, including, but not limited to electoral operations, fair electoral boundaries, local governments and campaign financing. We will strengthen the suite of legislation that make up or integrity system with assistance from reputable independent bodies such as the Commonwealth Secretariat. Labour representatives and Ministers vow to always be true to the Oath of Office as well as to our Party’s Covenant of Hope. Our purpose is to serve the people and communities; not to serve ourselves.
Delivering on the promise of a NextGen SKN would require a revolution in public service delivery that would ensure that government becomes more transparent and responsive to the people it is meant to serve. The creation of a next generation public service is a national imperative if St. Kitts & Nevis is to remain competitive in the 21st Century Global Economic environment. Labour will reorient and strengthen the civil service to be a more professional. We will introduce results-based performance assessments for all government employees at every level. The salary and benefits of the civil service will be reviewed and a bonus system that rewards performance will be introduced. Under the NextGen SKN Labour Movement the civil service will be a well trained and upskilled workforce.
