One of the residents named Gavin Hamilton applauded the meeting and said, “I am curious to discern the position of these participants with regards to constitutional conventions in young democracies like ours, whose founding documents are really too young to be regarded as complete. We are particularly in need of one in St Kitts and Nevis. The Charlestown Accord is too important to be sidelined by an Opposition that simply won’t show up to vote in Parliament.”
