Robert Lewis says he sticks to his word

Doctor Robert Lewis, the MP for Castries South, has told reporters that he is his own man.

Speaking about his decision to quit elective politics, Lewis said: “I am a man who sticks to my word once it is within my limits to do so and I said I want to do something else and move to something else.”

The Education Minister was responding to speculation about his reason for quitting, including suggestions that the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has pushed him out in favour of Ernest Hilaire.

“There’s a lot of stupidity in Saint Lucia that you ought not to answer to,” Lewis declared.

He recalled that when he entered politics it was because of the people of Castries South.

“People came to my home to ask me to represent them. I have to make my own decision as to when I leave the politics,” he said.

According to Lewis, supporters of the opposition United Workers Party can say whatever they want.

“In a free country you can speculate what you want, but Robert Lewis is his own man, and I decided I am not contesting the next election and that’s it,” he asserted.

    Which people came to your home to ask you to represent them? Hahahahahaha, and which others were finally able to convince you? You can say there is a lot of stupidity in St. Lucia now that you’re on your way out and not looking for votes but you didn’t say there are a lot of smart people in St. Lucia who can read through your smoke and mirrors. Tell us why you really leaving. Yeah yeah we know what you said but that is a convenient response to cover up the real reason. If you hadn’t said that years ago your departure would have been for health, study, or family reasons…..the usual political excuses when things go wrong.

    Based on that video I wonder what caused Robert Lewis to make such a hasty turnaround.
