LPM leader Therold Prudent, has said he has a feeling that contrary to appearances, the leader of the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), Prime Minister Doctor Kenny Anthony, may not call general elections early.
Prudent told the Times that the SLP has too many things that are unaccomplished.
He said the LPM has been monitoring the situation since last year and realized that the ruling party would love to have elections early.
According to the LPM leader, one of the reasons is that people are very disenchanted with the current administration.
He accused the SLP of not delivering on its promises, and believing that the party could exploit divisions which had emerged in the opposition United Workers Party (UWP).
Prudent also believes that the SLP is of the opinion that his party will not make an impact at the polls.
“My thought is they would love to be able to go for an election and pretend and posture that this is where they are going, but very likely we will not have an early election,” he asserted.
General elections in Saint Lucia are constitutionally due by March 2017, at the latest.
