UWP awaits outcome of recounts

The Chairman of the victorious United Workers Party (UWP), Guy Mayers, has disclosed that recounts will be taking place today of the votes in Castries South and Dennery North.

In Dennery North, Shawn Edward of the SLP (2,271 votes), won over the UWP’s Jimmy Henry (2,140), according to preliminary results.

The SLP’s Ernest Hilaire won 2084 votes in Castries South to the UWP’s Mary Isaac ( 2046).

Mayers told the Times that he wanted to congratulate all the UWP candidates.

“My only disappoint is that I had predicted 12-5 but for now we have 11-6. We have a recount in Castries South and Dennery North and I am just hoping that we can change things around in Castries South and bring home Castries South to make it the 12 -5,” the former National Security Minister said.

Mayers asserted that Saint Lucia wanted and had been advocating for change.

He said he was a “very happy” man.

However Mayers stated that the UWP now has to get to work to bring Saint Lucia back to where it ought to be.

    Look at the face of a disgraceful Guy Mayers.

    Hope you will have answers for the US Government on the reasons why you gave the police a list names to kill the citizens of this island.

        Guy Mayers was the Minister Of Justice at the Time.
        He Orchestrated ORC.
        He helped to set-up the list. And is responsible.
        Hope he doesn’t get scared when the Americans come for him and requests their pound of flesh. 🙂

    Kenny, Hilaire, Jimmy, Claudius, Jadia and company are so bright that they did not even see that coming? All of you guys are just a bunch of theorists.

    Dr. Hilaire, you really thought that all your Juffalli money could have bought people.

    Oh how I like the baptism you were given. The people eate, drank and almost voted you out.

    Dr. Hilaire, you are a theorist, that’s all you are. During your tenture as CEO at the WIBC, millions of dollars had to be paid to the players who complained about bad conditions such as sleeping on the floor, bathing under stand pipes and having no practice wickets prior to their games whilst on tour.

    Dr. Hilaire, you promised that tons of people would have flocked to our country during world cup cricket; that people would have to rent their homes and go live with their families, this never ever materialies.

    Further Dr. Hilaire you were involved in the National Youth Council (NYC) for years, this youth organization is no better off today than you left it.

    Despite being in several key positions locally, regionally and internationally how come it never crossed your mind to obtain funding for the NYC to have land, building and furniture that our youth can identify with your efforts?

    Lucians, if these brilliant guys couldn’t see so much licks coming in their tails, Lord alone knows where would they have visualized leading us to had they won the election.

    They tried to dis Mr. Peter Wickham’s findings by presenting a bogus poll that they said showed the slp winning 14 seats. I am surprised they didn’t say all 17.

    Choisuel, Anse La Raye, Babonneau, Gros Islet and Central Castries are all the seats that Wickham said could go to uwp and he was dead right, they all went to uwp by big, big margins.

    Coming to Philip J. Pierre, he should leave the political scene. He has no political ambition, no wonder the George Charles Boulevard at Marchand looks like pig-sty. This man is just contented with following nothing more, nothing less.

    Bye, bye all of you!

    Go take a hike!
