Prime Minister of St Vincent & the Grenadines, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, has reiterated his disdain for the economic citizenship programs being operated by some member states within the OECS sub-region.
Gonsalves in his latest comment on the matter, emphasized that his country’s citizenship is not for sale. He said, “The highest office in the land is that of ‘citizen’; higher than prime minister, higher than governor general. It is not a commodity for sale. The passport is the outward sign of the inward grace of citizenship, and that too, is not for sale”.
However former prime minister of St Kitts & Nevis, Denzil Douglas, denies that the CIP represents the selling of citizenships.
