UWP launches Castries East Candidate Fortuna Belrose

CASTRIES, Saint Lucia –Tuesday, May 10, 2016 – On Sunday, 15th May, 2016 the United Workers Party will officially launch one of its female candidates, Castries East Candidate Mrs. Cathelina Fortuna Belrose. This event will take place at the Entrepot Playing Field (Near the Entrepot Secondary School) at 6:00 p.m.

Mrs. Cathelina Fortuna Belrose is a former public servant with 34 years of experience. She has worked across nine government administrations providing her with a deep understanding of how Government works and how to implement policy to effect positive change. She is a focused worker who is dedicated to whatever task she takes on.

She was appointed the first female Youth and Sports Officer within the Ministry of Community Development, Social Affairs, Youth and Sports in 1981. She has operated in the capacity of Permanent Secretary and Deputy Permanent Secretary in more than one ministry. Mrs. Belrose has also held many executive positions on several national committee/boards in both managing and directing capacities.

She is the current President of the Saint Lucia Olympic Committee and her track record of voluntary service is well known nationally and internationally. Fortuna has travelled extensively and attributes much of the person she is to her work and life around youth development and sports.

The addresses for the evening will be delivered by our dynamic female candidates and parliamentarians, political leader Allen Chastanet and other senior members of the party. The United Workers Party Women’s Arm will present its newly elected National Executive, coming out of its Convention held on Saturday 14th May, 2016. The newly elected President is scheduled to make a short address at Sunday’s event.

The UWP’s ultimate aspiration is to bring as many women as possible into the political process to give balance to our perspectives on education; family; health, particularly women’s health; social and economic development. A special invitation is extended to all women in the country.

    Philip j Pierre a man with no ambition to lead SLP but prefers to remain as kenny’s sidekick until hilaire takes over.
    After twenty years Pierre cannot show his worth to lead. Says a lot about Philip. If he have no ambition and vision for himself how can he have for the constituency?

    Observer, what is wrong with you all people? So Pierre main ambition should be fighting with Kenny for the leadership Luke Odlum did and that will make you happy, creating an easier for your party to govern. In the SLP it is the DELEGATES who elect their leader of the party. That is not determined by Pierre. Also what is that obsession about Hilliare? A man who is just wetting his feet in the political arena and have not even won a seat yet. Are you telling us you have no confidence in your candidate Mary Issac and Hillaire have already won her? Who told you the delegates will elect Hillaire as leader?
