Former government Minister, Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, who intends to challenge Allen Chastanet for the leadership of the opposition United Workers Party, (UWP), has predicted a resounding election win for the party with her at the helm.
“Absolutely, I think we can have a resounding victory. It will be an exciting election,” Flood-Beaubrun told the Times in an interview.
However the former MP for Castries Central made it clear that the decision as to whether she leads the UWP is a matter for party members and delegates, who will vote at the UWP convention on November 15, 2015.
“I think I have a lot of work to do, but I can make it,” Flood-Beaubrun declared.
The Attorney at Law disclosed that she was seeking the leadership of the UWP because she believes that she can do a good job.
“I can really bring unity to the party. I really have what it takes. I have the experience to lead Saint Lucia, to restore confidence in our people, to deal with the issues that are facing us, to bring hope to a situation of despair. I think I am really ready for this job and I can do an excellent job. I think I am the person to do this at the moment. That’s why I have thrown my hat in the ring,”she declared
Flood-Beaubrun was nominated at a party meeting yesterday in Ti Rocher.
The nomination was made by the Gros Islet constituency branch of the UWP and seconded by Castries North.
Questioned on the matter, Flood-Beaubrun told the Times the two groups would have to be asked what motivated them.
