LPM leader says PM will not call early poll

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.

    They will not call it early, certainly not before or soon after budget. They have to posture and try the usual smoke and mirror election year projects. Plus too many issues which are hanging around their necks like lead bricks. Juffali, Lambirds, VAT, Defecting members Robert Lewis – Pep – and soon Lornie Boy. Plus the Ansela Raye/Canaries seat is bare roro plus other constituencies. Pip eh talking, Alva turn moomoo, no full slate of candidates yet, and stifled roro on the inside.

    Pressure does bust pipe and when you see that roro bust de SLP pipe not even WASCO can fix dat. Wait and see.
