Allen Chastanet Predicts UWP Election Win

Brushing aside reports of deep divisions within the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) political leader, Allen Chastanet, has expressed confidence that he will be reelected at the helm of the party a its convention next month, and has predicted that the UWP will win the next elections.

“If you go on social media, we dominate social media; when you look at the polling that we did, it clearly shows that there is a huge swing that is coming about in this country and there’s a great level of dissatisfaction with what is taking place in this country,” Chastanet asserted.

He told Choice Television’s Timothy Poleon during last evening’s “Hot Button Issue” call in programme, that there was one simple question people needed to answer, which was whether  they are better off today than in 2011.

According to Chastanet, the people have no confidence in the Saint Lucia Labor Party government, which is one of the principles underpinning a UWP organized protest march carded for later today from the Vigie playing field.

“The march is about the credibility of this government and whether people are happy,” the UWP leader asserted, while urging people to come out and support the event.

He asserted that supporters of the ruling labor party are also dissatisfied because they have to face various price increases.

Chastanet declared that Saint Lucia is in an economic depression and has recorded three consecutive years of contraction.

    Yes UWP will win the next elections but with Sarah Flood Beaubrun.

    With Chastanet there is too much animosity and division within the party and outside the people simply do not connect with him in any way.
    Ask the young people about him and ‘ah wah’ they just not interested.
    Ask the disgruntled SLPs and they will not vote for him.
    Ask the independents and they do not think he can bring the country together.
    Then 70% of the UWPs wish for another leader.
    Sarah and Sir John came from Micoud. Let us go with what we know can work!

    With all the division Chastanet will attract no investment and more importantly cannot rally the people behind him.
    Only Sarah can do that.

    Threee uestions: Who got a maariage annulled so that she could marry one of the parties to that marriage in a church? Who sectioned off a portion of VH and had specially fitted out so that she could deliver a child? Who insisted that her husband accompanied her on all official overseas trips? We are too easily sucked in by a pretty face with smiling mouth that delivers sugar and honey. A modern day Delilah.
