NPD Chairman Daniel Cummings

(News784-SVG) – Chairman of the New Democratic Party (NDP), Daniel Cummings, has hailed the Leader of his party, Dr. Godwin Friday as the Majority leader of the country.

“Tonight I want to send a word of warning to those who think they can govern us in the way they have in the past, we are the majority and we speak with authority.”

Cummings stated that there is a project in West Kingstown to develop the port which he has no difficulty with.

“In previous times I have asked in parliament for the document related to that project and I never got them.”

Cummings told party supporters, however, that this time around it will be very different.

“Listen to me SVG! Listen to me ULP! The people of West Kingstown have given me the authority to speak on their behalf. If you don’t dialogue with me and if you don’t make all the information available to me on that project, that project will be dead.”

Cummings reiterated that if there is no dialogue with him, the people of West Kingstown have given him the authority to say that there will be no port.

The new port in Kingstown,  valued at US$145 million, is among the major projects earmarked by the government.

The British government has provided US$40 million in grants toward the port project and the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) will finance the balance of the cost.
