Nevis Premier Mark Brantley has disclosed that a letter has been written to St Kitts and Nevis Governor General Sir Tapley Seaton indicating that most elected members in the National Assembly do not support Dr Timothy Harris continuing as Prime Minister.

They are now awaiting a response.

This follows an ultimatum on the Prime Minister by members of his tri-partite coalition to resolve deepening issues in the Team Unity Government or dissolve the legislature and pave the way for fresh general elections.

Brantley, the head of the Concerned Citizens Movement, one of the three parties in the coalition, says a response to the ultimatum came via email at 1:51 Thursday morning, but called it “an exercise in futility.”

Several issues have been festering, including concerns over the transparency of the Citizenship by Investment Programme. There are also concerns about ministerial portfolios.
