Micoud North MP, Doctor Gale Rigobert, has urged supporters of the opposition United Workers Party, (UWP), to think of the upcoming general elections as the most important in their lives, since never before in the history of this country has there been such hardship, misery and impoverishment.
“ I want you to know that the only person who can change that is you the people gathered here and you the Saint Lucians at home. This platform can only do so much. The rest is for you to do. The thousands of votes come from you the voters, the supporters, the members of the United Workers Party and the Saint Lucians who have had enough of a miserable, failing Labor administration. So when this election comes you have that responsibility to ensure that you and everyone in your household turns out to vote,” Rigobert told a political meeting of the UWP on Thursday night in Soufriere.
Rigobert, who is leader of the parliamentary opposition, urged party faithful to make up their minds that they would see the last of the labor party in the governance of Saint Lucia.
“Doctor Kenny Anthony can only go to a full five year term if you allow him and he understands that very well,” Rigobert asserted, adding that she was certain that the UWP would win the next elections.
“We are the only ones that can fix the problems of this country,” she told the Soufriere meeting.
