Castries Central MP, Richard Frederick, who was expelled from the United Workers Party, UWP, in August last year, has asserted that the party is headed for destruction under its current leader, Allen Chastanet.
“ Allen Chastanet has a history, a record of destroying everything he touches. It is no wonder that his father has said repeatedly that he does not want Allen Chastanet around his business,” Frederick told reporters outside parliament yesterday.
According to Frederick, he knew that long as Chastanet found himself at the helm, the party would have been headed for destruction.
The Castries Central MP declared that everything is being done to negate the possibility of the UWP forming the government.
He accused Chastanet of employing division as well as firing and sidelining individuals, while believing that structures were being put in place within the UWP.
“In politics every vote counts, and when you take away the voice of one person who has influential impact or an effect on other voters then invariably you are not affecting one voter, you are affecting a barrage of people who may be the follower of that specific voter,” Frederick said.
“I wish Sarah well,” he declared, referring to Sarah Flood-Beaubrun’s challenge to Chastanet for the leadership of the UWP at its upcoming November 15, 2015 convention.
However Frederick asserted that she is not going to win, because the process has been “infested” with manipulation.
