National Reform Movement (NRM)

The National Reform Movement (NRM) was a political party in Antigua and Barbuda. In the 1999 elections NRM had a single candidate, Knolly Hill, who ran in the in St. Peter constituency. However, he received only 33 votes, and failed to win a seat.

The NRM was described as "A Citizens Organization Dedicated to Progress and Influencing Change in Antigua and Barbuda". The organization was built on ten principles:

1. We believe that the people of Antigua and Barbuda are this Country's most valuable resource, and that the nature and development of human knowledge skills, and relationships are the keys to our future development.

2. We affirm the value and dignity of the individual person and the importance of strengthening and protecting the family asset as essential to the well-being of individuals and society.

3. We believe in the value of enterprise and initiative, and that the Government has a responsibility to foster and protect an environment in which initiative and enterprise can be exercised by individuals and groups.

4. We believe that the creation of wealth and productive jobs for the people of Antigua and Barbuda is best achieved through the operations of a responsible, free enterprise economy in which private property, freedom of contract, and the operations of free markets are encouraged and respected.

5. We believe that the people of Antigua and Barbuda have a personal and collective responsibility to care and provide for the basic needs of the people who are unable to care and provide for themselves.

6. We believe in the common sense of the common people, their right to be consulted on public policy matters, their right to choose their own leaders and to govern themselves through truly representative and responsible institutions.

7. We believe in accountability of elected representatives to the people who elect them, and that the duty of elected members to their constituents should supersede their obligations to their political party.

8. We believe in public service - that governments, civil servants, politicians, and political parties exist to serve the people and that they should demonstrate this service commitment at all times.

9. We believe that the public money should be regarded by government as 'funds held in trust', and that government should practice fiscal responsibility - in particular the responsibility to balance expenditures and revenues.

10. We affirm our committment to the rule of law, and to the concept that the government and the law makers are not above the law.
