Pierre, Chastanet Extend New Year Wishes To The Nation


Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre and opposition leader Allen Chastanet have extended New Year wishes to the nation on Facebook.

Pierre preceded his New Year wishes with a quote from the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:10: “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.”

He also wrote: “As we reflect on 2023 and look forward in anticipation to 2024, let us commit all our plans to the Lord. May Your will be done, O Lord. Happy New Year, everyone.”

For his part, the United Workers Party (UWP) leader Allen Chastanet urged citizens, as they welcomed 2024, to remember that each new year offers a fresh start.

“A new chapter in the Saint Lucian story we are all writing together,” Chastanet stated.

“This is a time to reflect on our journey, to appreciate our shared triumphs and learn from the challenges we’ve faced. It’s a moment to reignite our enduring spirit of hope, resilience, and the belief that our collective efforts can and will forge a brighter future,” he observed.

Chastanet urged his compatriots to embrace the new year with an unwavering commitment to unity, understanding, and compassion for all.

“Here’s to a 2024 filled with possibility, progress, and the enduring promise of our great nation. Happy New Year!” He wrote.

  1. As I started reading, “Pierre, Chastanet extend New Year wishes (I stop & wondered) to the Nation” then I breathed again, huh; wont it be nice if each would greet each other, ‘Seasons greetings’ over a glass of the best of the local Vintage? but sorry, I forgot they were mere politicians, while one quotes scripture, but don’t they all when it suites them? yes they do while St. Lucia suffers and grieve. What do they bring to the Table while they, and others eat at
    and from the same? some bring Guns just to make sure, another to do the Lucian favorite during worship. PEACE ON EARTH GUYS, GOOD WILL TO YOU ALL.

  2. What st Lucia has become I saw every pm took the air ways and wish their citizens and address the Lucia awa mois Lucia has become the lowest common denominator in the the CARRIBBEAN our country is not going on a good direction
