St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party parliamentarians and candidates to sign Code of Ethics on Wednesday
Basseterre, St. Kitts, December 4, 2018 – Seven of the eight candidates who will contest the next general elections for the opposition St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP), are expected to sign a Code of Ethics during a ceremony on Wednesday afternoon.
A Code of Ethics Ceremony is planned at 1:30 p.m. at Galaxy on Port Zante.
The signing ceremony will take place during the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party weekly radio appearance during “Issues” on Freedom 106.5 FM, which is also carried live on Kyss 102.5 FM on Wednesdays.
Early this year, National Political Leader of the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party, the Right Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas announced that the 86-year-old political organisation will introduce a Code of Ethics as an addendum to the Party Constitution at the next annual conference in May 2019.
“All of our candidates and parliamentarians will be bound by the code,” Dr. Douglas announced last June during his weekly radio programme “Ask the Leader” on Kyss 102.5 FM.
He said the oldest and strongest political institution in the Federation has been courting members who have served the country selflessly and with integrity over several generations to lead by example in setting the moral standard for conduct in public life.
Dr. Douglas said the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party was examining publications by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association which have set certain benchmarks for codes of conduct and leadership.
He pointed out that with the adoption of the Code of Ethics, party members will be bound to abide by the principles contained and gave the public the assurance of its seriousness about good governance, integrity, transparency and accountability in public life.
