SLP accuses opposition of provocation

 The Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) says it is concerned about the decision of the United Workers Party (UWP) to host a rally in Anse Ger/Desruisseaux, alongside the SLP’s launching of Herbert Roserie in Micoud.

The SLP notes that a previously advertised UWP launching of Dominic Fedee at the Anse La Raye Waterfront on that same date has been cancelled in favour of a Micoud South event.

The SLP’s concern stems from a pattern of behavior that Allen Chastanet has had during the 2016 campaign. On each occasion Chastanet has awaited an announcement from the SLP, only to plan activities on the same day.

Chairman of the SLP, Hon. Claudius Francis says this is an opportunity for the SLP and its supporters to demonstrate maturity, despite the provocations of the UWP. According to Francis,

“They have tried every tactic to provoke our candidates and supporters and on every occasion we have remained focused and resolute. This latest move is yet another campaign tactic to promote clashes and confrontation.

I call on all supporters and well-wishers of the Saint Lucia Labour Party to follow the example of our Political Leader and remain calm and focused on our record of achievements and pledges to transform Saint Lucia.

To our supporters who will be attending our campaign events, I urge and advise that you should not react to provocation. Do not react to the anger and desperation of Allen Chastanet and the UWP.

We will conduct our campaign with class and respect, despite attempts by the Opposition to incite negative campaigning and reactions.


We wish Saint Lucia a peaceful campaign.”

    NONSENSE!! This is just a distraction from Lorne’s fiasco mic check. This has no substance and is simply designed to create noise, as usual. The UWP and SLP get their meetings approved by the police. Since when does SLP have a monopoly on when to have a political meeting. back in the day SLP used to have their meeting on the Market steps while UWP was in the Boulevard. Pressure in you all tail so the strategy now is to kick and scream, and cry like little babies. No distraction, Lorne must withdraw!

    The real provocation is Lorne Theophulis. Needs to clean up his mouth. A government minister with such uncouth behaviour. Not deserving of any title honourable.
    But is he talking also for and behalf of the labour party. Disgusting as jadia publicly dissing her father for politics.
    Lorne is alreAdy under the microscope.

    Lies, lies, lies. People should know by now that most SLP supporters are violent and provocative. Stop talking foolishness and creating an image that doesn’t exist. God is not sleeping he sees everything. The UWP cancelled their Anse La Raye launch and it was advertise on Jook Bois before 6 am on Friday morning. I never heard or saw a broadscast from your camp until late Friday. I will not have this because UWP supporters are indeed fearful of the red rebells.
