SLP: Stanley Felix will prevail!

The ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), has asserted that its Castries Central candidate, Stanley Felix, will prevail in a three cornered battle for the constituency.

Former SLP Castries Central MP, Sarah Flood-Beaubrun and the incumbent, Richard Frederick, are the other contenders.

Flood-Beaubrun, who won the seat on two consecutive occasions, is now running on an opposition United Workers Party (UWP) ticket.

Richard Frederick, who was expelled from the UWP is expected to run as an Independent.

“We believe that we have a well-entrenched candidate in Central Castries in Stanley Felix and we stand by him because we believe he will be victorious,” SLP General Secretary, Leo Clarke has said.

Clarke recalled that Felix made quite an impact in the general elections of 2011.

“I think he is going to get better,” the SLP General Secretary asserted.

Felix failed in his bid to win the seat by sixty-eight votes.

Clarke expressed the view that Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, whose candidacy for the seat was declared just this week as a replacement for Peterson Francis, will have to take some time rebuilding her credibility.

He accused the former SLP minister of resorting to saying anything to “hoodwink” the electorate.

According to Clarke, Flood-Beaubrun was the same person who had castigated UWP leader Allen Chastanet as being unsuited to be Prime Minister.

“Apparently she has forgotten that because today she is a candidate under his leadership,” he observed.

The SLP General Secretary said that Flood-Beaubrun’s statements and actions are clearly in conflict.

He recalled that the last time the former minister ran in Castries Central she obtained four hundred votes as a candidate in the by election in 2006.

The actual tally was 415 votes as Flood-Beaubrun participated in a three-cornered race with Victor La Corbiniere and Richard Frederick, who ran then as an Independent.

Frederick won the seat, subsequently being endorsed by the UWP.

“We have a candidate who is growing from strength to strength,” Clarke said of Stanley Felix, adding that Felix came very close to capturing the Castries Central seat the last time that he ran.

He declared that the SLP is very confident that Felix will win the seat this time around.

    I find it interesting – almost amusing, how nowadays the SLP are so careful not to say anything bad about Richard Frederick.

    Permit me to ask Leo Clarke what is worst, is it Sahara saying that Chastanet is unsuited to be PM, or Kenny Davis Anthony saying he would write to investors telling them not to come and do business in our country just because he was not PM at that time?

    It stands to reason that what Kenny wanted to see happen in our country at that time was persons without jobs and dying from hunger and starvation.

    I really do hope St. Lucians remember this plantation child statement coupled with his statement that VAT was a wicked and oppressive Tax when he was in opposition and as son he got into Gov’t he imposed the same VAT on us.

    When we do get the opportunity to vote, we must make Kenny Davis Anthony pay for pains he has inflicted on us.
