Former Prime Minister Congratulates UWP

Former Prime Minister Congratulates UWP

The following is a statement issued by Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony on the June 6, 2016 General Elections:

“On behalf of the Saint Lucia Labour Party and also on my personal behalf, I congratulate Mr. Allen Chastanet, Leader of the United Workers Party on his victory at the polls today, June 6, 2016.

On all accounts, this was a convincing victory. It is clear there was a major national swing against the Saint Lucia Labour Party.

I wish the people of Saint Lucia the very best as we embark on this new journey.

As to my future, I do not intend to serve as the Leader of the Opposition and indeed, Political Leader of the Saint Lucia Labour Party. I will, however, continue to serve my constituents of Vieux-Fort South and support my other Parliamentary colleagues in their various constituencies as they seek to protect the interests of their constituents.

I am deeply grateful for the honour of serving the people of Saint Lucia as Prime Minister for nearly three terms.

My special thanks to the people of Vieux-Fort South for electing me as their Parliamentary Representative for the fifth time.”

    Excellent move, very mature and timely. You served St. Lucia well your imprints are there for even the blind to see. You should have learnt from the Jamaica and Trinidad experience.

    Newsman, until the Prime Minister Designate is sworn in Kenny is Prime Minister and is better referred to as outgoing Prime Minister. He’s not former, yet.

    Thanks Dr. ANTHONY for the gracious concession. Now let’s wish the UWP god speed in the path ahead and pray that they perform as promise. Let us keep them honest and true but work together for a better St. LUCIA. Wow the sky has opened, the rain is pouring, the celebrations cut short because there is work to do to get us back to growth and prosperity and hear the monies in our pocket go “ching, ching, ching.”

    Dr Anthony did a great job although I believe the VAT was a bit too high. I pray tht Allen Chastanet Will keep his promises and make St Lucia a better place to live and invest
