Crack Of Violence Creeps Into The December 9th General Election

As momentum for the December 9th General Elections intensified, the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force is appealing to Vincentian, when campaigning to do so in a peaceful and calm way.

Speaking with NBC news on Tuesday November 16th, commissioner of police Michael Charles says it is crucial that every citizen remembers that they are their brothers’ keeper.

Charles states, people have a duty to always be alert of how far they go while supporting their personal political parties.

The Commissioner also says the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force is closely monitoring the developments at the Sion Hill Intersection, involving supporters of the two main political parties here.

And speaking on the incident involving supporters of ULP and NDP which took place over the weekend in the North Leeward constituency, Commissioner Charles says the police is presently investigating the matter.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves has spoken out against acts of Violence that are creeping into the December 9th General Elections Campaign.

Speaking at a rally of the Unity Labour Party last Saturday at the Arnos Vale Playing Field Dr. Gonsalves spoke specifically to an incident which occurred in the North Leeward Constituency last Friday night.

According to the Prime Minister, while ULP constituents of North Leeward were hosting a red lime they had to seek refuge after it started raining bottles, and if such actions are not nipped in the bud, they can lead to very serious consequences for St. Vincent and the Grenadines and its people.
