Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis and Minister of Finance, the Honourable Dr. Terrance Drew, during his Budget Address 2023, highlighted that the Government is doing significant work to guarantee that the Integrity in Public Life (Amendment) Bill, Anti- Corruption Bill and Freedom of Information (Amendment) Bill, are soon tabled in the Parliament, enacted into law, and ‘given teeth’.

Although the Integrity in Public Life Bill and Freedom of Information Bill were passed into law in 2018 under the Dr. Timothy Harris Administration, they were never fully operationalized.

“Plans are advancing for the tabling of the Integrity in Public Life (Amendment) Bill, the Anti-Corruption Bill and the Freedom of Information (Amendment) Bill. Further, we also plan to continue with the important reforms related to the public procurement regime.
