Chastanet says SLP has history of violence

Chastanet says SLP has history of violence

The leader of the opposition United Workers Party (UWP), Allen Chastanet, has declared that the only part with a history of violence in Saint Lucia is the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).

Chastanet was responding to a renewed warning from National Security Minister, Victor La Corbiniere, that election violence will not be tolerated.

In sounding the warning, La Corbiniere had cited two incidents, including one some time ago at the Soufriere Bridge, as evidence that the UWP was inclined to misbehave.

However Chastanet told the Times that there is evidence to show that the person who was being violent during the Soufriere Bridge incident was the ruling party MP for the area, Harold Dalsan.

“In fact he had to be restrained,” the UWP leader recalled.

Chastanet expressed the opinion that the Minister of National Security ought to be more concerned about dealing with the affairs of the public and setting an example for the people of Saint Lucia.

According to him, the UWP will continue to lead the way to Saint Lucia’s recovery.

    Look who is talking about U.W.P. being violent – La Corbs.

    Don’t trust anyone who blinks incessantly and refuses to look straight into your face for more than a second, when talking to you!

    How did Julian Hunte leave the SLP in 1996? What was allegedly held to him?
    Who said over my dead body Chastanet not becoming PM of ST. Lucia.
    All the unsolved murders and rapes not troubling La Corbs and that is what we paying him to deal with. Fix the police force and deal with IMPACS.
    Since he became minister he has not shown a crime fighting plan.
    He not ashamed. No Police Commissioner and no DPP and deputy DPP and he deh running behind Timothy poleon and Chastanet
