Fedee Foresees ‘Redemption Election’

Former Tourism Minister Dominic Fedee believes that the next Saint Lucia general elections, which saw the United Workers Party (UWP) voted out of government, will be a ‘redemption election.’

And former Health Minister Mary Isaac has declared that UWP leader Allen Chastanet is the ‘right man for the job’ of leading the country.

Chastanet was at the helm of the UWP when it suffered a massive defeat at July 26, 2021, elections.

Dominic Fedee and Mary Isaac spoke this week at a news conference.

Fedee told reporters that the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) administration has no vision or solutions.

He indicated that this included an absence of plans to deal with crime and the economy.

“This election – the next one is going to be very interesting. I think it is going to be a redemption election,” the former Tourism Minister declared.

Mary Isaac, for her part, told reporters that all the work Allen Chastanet did as Prime Minister showed that he is a ‘man of vision.’

“He is in his prime. He knows how to run this country. We saw him do it. We saw how he managed COVID with of course, the assistance of all the public sector workers, his own Cabinet Ministers and so on,” the former Health Minister stated.

“I believe this is the right man for the job right now. I do not see anybody else in Saint Lucia that could rise to the level that I see Allen Michael Chastanet rose to during his tenure,” Isaac asserted.

In addition, she disclosed that within the UWP, she had not obtained any sense that there is any significant person or a large number of people who would not support Chastanet to govern Saint Lucia “when the UWP gets back in office”.

Responding to reports of a possible leadership challenge to Chastanet from former Agriculture Minister Ezechiel Joseph, Isaac explained that she is very close to Joseph.

“We talk all the time, and I do not get that feeling that Mr. Ezechiel has any intention of challenging anyone anywhere for leadership of the party,” Isaac told this week’s news conference.

“I am not saying that I know everything that Mr. Ezechiel is thinking, ” she said.

“Since the leadership of the party has run so smoothly – Mr. Chastanet has done such a wonderful job, I do not see why Mr. Ezechiel would want to do anything like that,” Isaac told reporters.

  1. I’m really sorry for voting for this current government. I honestly regret it. Bring back CHAS now.

  2. Fedee chat all you want you not getting back your seat pal…..this publication should ask the people in his constituency about how they really feel about this Clown to get that eye popping awakening. If their Great White Hope is only Allen Chastanet then the landslide will be greater.

  3. We want the entire SLP cabal with all these tainted people out. It’s just not right what they’re doing to the country. Some of us decided to give them a chance, for what I don’t know, considering how well Chas was managing in the midst of Covid. But it’s inevitable they can’t do jack but continue to travel with a big unnecessary entourage. We weee told UWP was corrupt, but they can’t produce one shred of evidence, but we can clearly see who are the crooked and corrupt ones. So PJP please call elections and we want Chas to take over as the country is bleeding uncontrollably under SLP with no plans🇱🇨🇱🇨🇱🇨🇱🇨🇱🇨🇱🇨🇱🇨🇱🇨

  4. Flambeau will be in opposition for the next 20 years . The thiefs want to get back in power so they can reap off the country. Those politicians only represent the interest of the oppressors after 43 years post independence not even a minimum wage can be enacted …

  5. Corruption corruption. Both are corrupt but when you have those who are quick to call the other corrupt, they are the ones more corrupt. SLP I thought your party was better than that. Remember practice what you preach.

  6. fedee we don’t really want y’all yellow clowns but it is either y’all or the red jackasses. so we keep swapping out until y’all figure it out or something better comes along.

  7. As a black man I will do anything to see that chastanet never come back in power I am ready to die with bullets all over my body but we black people need to chase the oppressors whose wealth was built on the enslavement of my ancestors
