Pierre On Chastanet’s Democracy Walk – ‘The Opposition Are Seeking Relevance’

spot_img

Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre responded to opposition leader Allen Chastanet’s ‘Walk for Democracy’ on Tuesday by asserting that the opposition is seeking relevance.

“The opposition are seeking relevance. We have to run a country. We’re going to run it. We’re not going to get sidestepped by an opposition leader who is lost and seeking relevance,” Pierre told reporters on the sidelines of a House of Assembly meeting.

The Prime Minister said he was not bothered.

He explained that he has a country to run with 18 percent economic growth and the lowest unemployment since 2010.

“That’s what we’re interested in. Next year we want to maintain the growth levels. We have to further reduce unemployment, so we’re not worried about the noise out there,” Pierre asserted against the backdrop of chants by supporters of Chastanet’s democracy walk.

He recalled that the people had rejected Chastanet’s United Workers Party (UWP).

Pierre’s Saint Lucia Labour Party rose to power in a landslide after the July 26, 2021, general elections.

HOWEVER, ON THE PROSPECTS THESE POLITICAL POWER MONGERING WHOEVER THE PEOPLE HAVE VOTED OUT HIS PRIME MINISTERSHIP SHOULD JUST VANISHED AND ALLOWED GOOD SENSES OF LEADERSHIP TO PREVAILED. PROTESTING ON THE ROAD AS IF THE COUNTRY IS UNDER IMPERIALISM. GIVE PHILLIP J PIERRE AS HE LAMENTED TO RUN THE COUNTRY. CHAS, YOU WERE ALREADY THERE, YOU GOT VOTED OUT BY THE MASES.

  7. PIP, why don’t you focus on doing your job and not look at what the opposition does.

  8. MAKING SOME CORRECTIONS. IDI AMIN TOOK THE LIVES OF 300.000 UGANDANS AND USING SUCH TERRIBLE INDIVIDUAL NAME WHILST THAT’S NOT WHO YOU ARE, IN TERMS OF YOUR INDENTIFICATION. I REALLY DON’T IF YOU ARE ALLOWED TO FALSIFIED YOURSELF ON SOCIAL MEDIA COMMENTARY 😒. YOU WON’T ALLOWED TO DO THIS ELSEWHERE ON THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE. HOWEVER, KEEPING IN LINE WITH THE TOPIC. THE OPPOSITION LEADER SHOULD GIVE PHILIP J PIERRE A CHANCE TO RUN THE COUNTRY. PROTESTING AS IF OUR PEOPLE ARE STAVING TO DEATH. THERE’S SO MANY ECONOMIC FACTORS AFFECTING THIS ENTIRE WORLD AT PRESENT 🎁. SAUDI ARABIA HAVE COME ABOARD TO COMPLETE ST. JUDE HOSPITAL EXCEPT FOR THESE TWO INDIVIDUALS WHO WERE PRIME MINISTERS DURING THE NEWLY CONSTRUCTION OF ST. JUDE HOSPITAL. THEY ARE PART AND PARCEL OF THE LABOUR PARTY. THAT’S THE ONLY DISAPPOINTMENTS TO BE REMEMBERED. ALL OF US AWARE!! I DON’T KNOW IF PHILIP J PIERRE SHOULD KEPT THESE INDIVIDUALS IN THE PARTY. THEY’VE WASTED SO MUCH MONEY. SAUDI ARABIA, WILL BE DOING US A GOOD FAVOUR. AFTER THE COMPLETION OF ST. HOSPITAL. I DO HOPE THAT, OUR PEOPLE WILL RESPECT ☪️ ISLAM. IN MY FIRST COMMENTS READ BETWEEN THOSE LINES AND DONT CHASTISED FOR WRITING IMPROPER ENGLISH. DO THE CORRECTIONS FOR ME IN YOUR THOUGHTS.

  9. A few years ago Chastanet and the UWP put barricades outside of parliament, stopped SLP marches, and now they crying foul. Chastanet was brought back into parliament and he refused to attend. That nutcase needs to be out of our politics for good.

  10. CONRAD – who do you think you’re kidding? what happen to the old name posing as the ‘Dishonerable Highgrade’ and yourself? I don’t know who is worse. Your writing is the shyts, tell your usual friends to do as before, e-mail you some crap to make it look good; good luck with that.

  11. Sick of all these politicians. Chas, PJP the whole lot. Just run the country and a good start would be to fix the roads. I can’t understand where all this borrowed money is going.

  12. Well it look like the opposition got plenty of relevance judging by the many that came out to march

  13. THE FOX. IF SOMEONE CALLS YOU A FOX IN REAL LIFE. YOU WOULDN’T LIKE IT. NAME CALLING IS AGAINST THE LAW IN ANY GIVEN SOCIETY. WEVE HAD A FEMALE FARM WORKER FROM ST. LUCIA. WHILE WORKING ON THE FARM IN CANADA. A WH#TE MAN MADE MENTION THAT, ST. LUCIANS ARE HUNGRY DOGS. I AM TALKING SH#T?? ST. LUCIA TIMES SHOULD NEVER ALLOWED SUCH THINGS TO HAPPEN. WOULD YOU HAVE TOLERATED SOMEONE IN AMERICA YELLING LOUD AT YOU BLACK FOX? THIS WILL BE FALLEN UNDER THE RACE CARD. PUT YOUR REAL NAME ON THE PEOPLE WEBSITE. THATS A PUBLIC SERVICE, PUBLIC FIGURE DISCOURSE. WHEN I SEE YOU ON A CONSISTENT BASIS IN PUBLIC. I WILL BE YELLING LOUD AT YOU. MRS FOX, GO AND CATCH ME A RABBIT TO EAT. THEN COME BACK AND TELL US HOW IT FEELS? WAKE UP TO YOURSELF. IGNORANCY WILL CONTINUE TO SURFACE ON THIS PLANET EARTH 🌏

  14. All Allen Chastanet does is speak in vague generalities. He invokes democracy solely when he wants to validate his stupidity. In a democracy when you accuse a person of wrongdoing the burden of proof is on you to prove that person wrong. Meanwhile, Chastanet couldn’t prove the SLP-led government corrupt on the land sale at Tapion. As a result, he should shut his mouth until he has overwhelming evidence to substantiate his allegation. This goes out to every St. Lucia who talks glibly in the name of democracy.

    Chastanet has a track record of incompetence and sheer ignorance and should not be trusted. He has demonstrated time and time again to be an opportunistic charlatan. Tuesday’s protest march was the culmination of his demagoguery.

  15. Pierre you may be correct that the opposition is seeking relevance, but its time that you and your bunch begin to do the work you were elected to do. Stop protecting the VICTORY, you need to get out of opposition mode and govern. You also need to start hammering down the hatches, a cabinet reshuffle and dismissal should be on the cards. You trust King Cobra to have him there for more than 2 years. Watch your back, already you have Helaire to deal with and the one who’s bank account is now the subject of money laundering.
