Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has announced plans for a ‘massive’ celebration in the constituency of Micoud South to mark two years since his Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) won the July 26, 2021, general elections.
The SLP won the election by a landslide, grabbing thirteen seats in the 17-seat House of Assembly.
Stephenson King and Richard Frederick, who declared themselves Independent Candidates and won in Castries North and Castries Central, later joined the SLP Cabinet.
The United Workers Party (UWP), which enjoyed an 11-6 majority before the elections, was left with just two seats.
“We have not had time to celebrate our victory,” Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre told reporters on Monday.
In this regard, he announced that on July 30, the SLP will hold a massive thanksgiving rally in Micoud South.
The Castries East MP extended an invitation to all SLP supporters and all Saint Lucians to attend.
“We have got a lot to talk about. We have got a lot to celebrate,” Pierre observed as he alluded to how far Saint Lucia has come since his party’s election victory.
And although Micoud South is the constituency that opposition leader and former Prime Minister Allen Chastanet represents, Pierre dismissed suggestions that there was any significance to choosing that community for the SLP election victory celebration.
“Micoud South is part of Saint Lucia. We are an inclusive government,” he explained.
