St Kitts and Nevis: Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis and the leader of the People’s Labour Party- Dr Timothy Harris, announced that their administration would immediately begin construction of 2000 new low to middle-income homes for young people if they will be elected in the upcoming general election on August 5, 2022. 

Through his social media, he penned down major plans, policies and agendas for PLP, which will be people-centric. He stated the government will: 

  • Construct 2,000 new housing solutions for lower and middle-income families around the island of St. Kitts, particularly in marginalized and growing communities;
  • Provide duty-free concessions to assist college/university graduates in building, purchasing or renovating their first home. This will help them in making the transition faster from being a renter to being a property owner while enabling them to move quickly into raising families and building their net worth;
  • Extend the reduction in the annual land and house taxes for first-time homeowners.

He also announced the major policies for the families while noting, “Families are the bedrock of our society, and as a PLP Government, we will support them to thrive. We will:

  • Introduce a financial assistance programme for families to supplement incomes under $3000.
  • Increase the PAP from $500 a month to $1000 a month from September 1 2022;
  • Expand the number of families that would benefit from the PAP programme
  • Establish a liveable income of $3000 monthly.
  • Ensure that all police officers, nurses, teachers, and defence force personnel will receive a minimum salary of $3000 per month
  • Consider the possibility of raising the minimum wage.
  • Introduce a Child Care allowance of $500 for parents making less than $3000 per month.

PLP candidates stated, “The PLP has a track record of delivering for and keeping our people safe, especially in the worst of times. Our contract with you is our way to show that we are serious about our commitment to deliver #A Secure Future for you #Vote PLP.”
