Dennery North MP Shawn Edward has told ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) supporters to be vigilant as a desperate opposition United Workers Party (UWP) was on a smear campaign.
“They are prepared to do anything, anything whatsoever just to regain government,” Edward declared.
Acting as Prime Minister while Philip J. Pierre was away on official business, the Dennery North MP spoke at a recent annual general meeting of the SLP’s Gros Islet constituency.
He told the audience they would hear all sorts of things about the Labour Party.
Edward also said there would be attacks on individual Cabinet members.
“They will attack us collectively at times,” the Minister for Education, Sustainable Development, Innovation, Science, Technology and Vocational Training stated.
However, he urged AGM attendees to remain focused and vigilant.
“Don’t leave it just to a handful of supporters to defend the government,” he asserted.
He outlined several measures the SLP administration had put in place to assist people and develop the country since getting into after the July 26, 2021, general election.
“Ours is one of the best-performing governments in the entire region, and you have to safeguard that. You have to protect the victory. You have to ensure that we stay on that path where we deliver to the people of Saint Lucia,” Edward said.
