BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, CMC – Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas Tuesday said dismissed senior government minister Dr. Timothy Harris had asked him to resign as head of the government last month, accusing the former minister of being part of a “conspiracy to bring the government to an end” and establish a unity government in St. Kitts-Nevis.
Speaking in Parliament on a bill to increase the number of senators in the legislative chamber, Dr. Douglas, who earlier this week dismissed Harris from his government, said that the former minister had come to his office personally on December 10 “to ask me to resign. That is a fact.
“It has to be somebody who is power crazy or power hungry. No reasonable person sitting on the Labour Party side of this House could think that PAM (People’s Action Movement) could pass a prime ministership to them,” he told legislators.
Both Harris and Opposition Leader Mark Brantley disagreed with the allegation that they were involved in an attempt to bring down the government and establish a unity government.
