Chastanet Says SLP Of Heading To Parliament To Create More Jobs For The Boys


Opposition leader Allen Chastanet has accused the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) administration of planning to create more jobs for the boys.

In a Facebook post, the United Workers Party (UWP) leader asserted that when Parliament meets on Tuesday, the Philip J. Pierre administration would change the Constitution again.

“Tomorrow’s proposed change in the Constitution will allow for someone other than an elected representative to serve as the Deputy Speaker, thus allowing them to create a job for one of their Labour Party comrades,” Chastanet wrote on Monday.

“This trend from the SLP Administration is extremely concerning given that on every occasion that they have made changes to the Constitution, there has been little to no consultation with the general public,” the Micoud South MP observed.

“First, they removed the regulations and board that we had put in place to oversee the spending of Citizenship by Investment funds. Then last week, they hurriedly joined the CCJ without any consultation and ignored the public’s demands for a referendum on the issue. Where is the transparency and accountability that they promised you?” He stated.

Chastanet also said the Government would borrow $3.5 Million for the St. Jude Hospital Reconstruction project and would finally be tabling the long overdue Citizenship by Investment report, which he had constantly requested.

And he declared that regardless of those issues, he looked forward to contributing to Tuesday’s parliamentary debate.

Chastanet walked out of the House of Assembly last week after a testy exchange with Speaker, Claudius Francis.

He declared afterward that he had no respect for the Speaker.

  1. The government has to borrow again to finish St Jude’s because your squandered funds to finish it just put a spotlight on your failures my God. Change the dam constitution as needed nothing is written in stone it always need twerking WE ARE NOT OUTRAGED just as long as our civil liberties remained in tact .

  2. Jump around before you talk about hanging people , let us create the environment where our people can prosper and progress for example education ,health care ,minimum wage ,life skills etc…

  3. Fact is many of us who talk and think we make sense do not understand and realize that civil liberties are under attack. In St. Lucia. It’s just time for the problem to grow into chaos

  4. I am very previlidged, informing the World about my St Lucian heritage but, I’m I am somewhat naive when it comes, to my knowledge of the Government Ministers and their Parliamentary Positions. Can someone kindly, do the honours and write The Who’s , Who in Parliament please.
    Thank you.
