The Opposition of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is planning to boycott today’s sitting of Parliament.

The New Democratic Party (NDP) wants Prime Minister, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves to step aside until a judicial review of the state\'s decision not to pursue a rape allegation against him.

A policewoman on Dr. Gonsalves security team accused him of rape, but according to the Chief Prosecutor there is no evidence to back up the claim.

Opposition Leader, Arnhim Eustace said he is concerned about the image of the country, while the case drags on.
