Leader of the Opposition Arnhim Eustace says his family was threatened Monday night.
Eustace did not detail the nature of the threat when he spoke about it in Langley Park Tuesday night at the beginning of his New Democratic Party’s “Ring De Bell Island Tour”.
“Some people say the worst things; I get accustomed so much, I don’t even bother with them. It don’t bother me.
“Up to last night, I had threats against my family. I ain’t going into the details of that, but I get that. None of them frightening me,” Eustace said.
He further said he is confident that the NDP, which holds seven seats in Parliament, compared to the ruling Unity Labour Party’s eight, will be elected to office at the next general elections, constitutionally due in December 2015.
“The New Democratic Party will take the reigns of government in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, that is what I am convinced about. And once we do that, we will work with the people of this country to improve the livelihood of all,” Eustace said.
This is at least the second time that Eustace has spoken about threats against him or his family.
Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves has told the nation that he of multiple threats against him (Gonsalves).
