John Victorin for Anse La Raye Canaries

John Victorin has been selected as the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party’s candidate for Anse La Raye/Canaries, reliable sources have confirmed.

Victorin will come up against Dominic Fedee of the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) in the next elections to retain the seat, currently held by Doctor Desmond Long, for the ruling party.

Long announced recently that he was bowing out of elective politics.

Victorin, 41, has a history of working with youth and sport in the community.

He has played prominent roles in the Canaries Youth and Sports Council and has managed the Canaries Senior football team.

Victorin has also worked with the National Youth Council.
