The general governor of Saint Lucia, Emmanuel Neville Cenac, endorsed the nomination of the Cuban medical contingent, a brigade of which has been working here since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020.
The governor and other two political figures, Dame Pearlette Louisy and Kenny Anthony, joined the Cuba-Saint Lucia Humanistic Association of Solidarity to acknowledge Cuba's medical cooperation.
In the meantime, the proposal to award the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize to the contingent of Cuban doctors who specialise in disaster situations and serious epidemics has been endorsed by four members of the British Parliament.
The official site of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign in the United Kingdom says the four members of the House of Commons – Paula Barker, Ian Byrne, Dan Carden and Kim Johnson, highlighted the humanitarian aid provided by Cuba and the Henry Reeve International Contingent of Doctors.
With the four formal nominations of the legislators, 16 requests submitted by British parliamentarians are accumulated, to which another eight were sent by academics from the United Kingdom.
Nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize have a deadline of January 31 of each year and can only be made by parliamentarians, academics, awardees, judges of international courts, and active or retired members of the Committee.
