Lord Howard congratulates Chastanet

The Patron of the British Caribbean Chamber of Commerce, Lord Howard, former leader of the UK Conservative Party and British Home Secretary, today congratulated Saint Lucia’s new Prime Minister, The Honourable Allen Chastanet upon being elected to lead the country for the next five years, following Monday’s election.

Lord Howard told the Saint Lucia media that he “congratulates the Island’s Prime Minister upon his election result and on taking office on Tuesday. It was a decisive result and part of a democratic process that all of us in the free world cherish. The BCCCSL looks forward to continuing its work in Saint Lucia and to building stronger economic and commercial ties between our nations, throughout the term of this new Government.

“I have already had the opportunity of talking of our common goals with Prime Minister Chastanet some months ago; as I did at that time with the former Prime Minister Dr Anthony. Yesterday I sent Dr Anthony a message expressing my appreciation for the work and cooperation that he extended to the Chamber during his term in office.
