Declaring that there are disagreements in every family, the former United Workers Party (UWP) MP Herod Stanislas has denied turmoil in the opposition group.

“I do not believe the party is in turmoil. Like every family, you get disagreements. You get persons with different opinions and it’s just a matter of us coming together and fleshing out our differences and coming to a mutual understanding,” Stanislas told reporters on Thursday.

“I strongly believe the party is going to fix itself. We are going to regroup, restructure and be a formidable force again,” he asserted.

Allen Chastanet led the party into the July 26, 2021, elections in which the electorate voted the UWP out of government.

But Stanislas said he firmly believed Chastanet would seek to retain the party leadership and emerge victorious to put the organisation back on the road to victory at the next elections.

Chastanet for his part, told reporters on Tuesday that the UWP was seeking to have its convention on March 5.

  1. I do not believe that uwp will get back in power chastened is hungry for power but he has no vision to get the people out of poverty.. He was in power for 5 years and refuse to enact a minimum wage

  2. The country is now frustrated with the bunch of politicians currently on display. We are tired. A new political group – comprising young intellectuals with developed minds – will be established and will be contesting the next general elections. This new cadre of visionary intellectuals would have gone through intense mental discipline and will be charged to develop and introduce creative ideas to combat our current societal, economic and environmental challenges. As this world rapidly changes, a new mindset is necessary for survival. I say no more until the launch date is set.

  3. Solutions Oriented are you living in La La Land? What electorate are you referring too? St Lucians may seem to be disgusted with the current crop of politicians but I will never advice any young intellectual group of people to form a new party cause the red and yellow cursed society will never let them see the light of day.

  4. Highly Educated Individuals Married and above the age of 45years Should Organise another Solid political Party in St.Lucia
    St.Lucia needs that too much Roro with Uwp and Slp

  5. Bone,

    You have a point, and I totally understand your truth about they are only seeing the old 2 party controlled state. So much for our blindedness and lack of self knowledge. A new mindset is needed nonetheless which cannot be attained with those now vying for relevance. The question remains: do they have the mental capacity to deal with the ever changing world order ? Adaptability to these constant changes are required in order for us as a people to evolve. There is and will be no savior as claimed that will save us from the very issues largely created by ourselves. You may ask the question regarding international events contributing to these effects but our response remains in our hands. Let me remind you also that these economic situations give birth to new ideas. You ask god for wisdom, he will give you problems to solve !
