Pierre cautions against victimization

Pierre cautions against victimization

Castries East MP, Philip J.Pierre, has declared that he respects the will of the people in the outcome of the June 6, 2016 general elections, but cautions against victimization by the new administration.

The Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), of which Pierre is Deputy Political leader, lost the elections by a margin of 11 to 6.

“I respect the fact that we are no longer in political power and I respect the fact that the people have chosen a new government,” he told the Times.

However the former government minister in the SLP administration said he hopes that the new government does not target his or any other constituency won by the labour party for victimization or exclusion.

Pierre asserted that he is ready to work for the people.

He stated that he is ready to see that all the projects he started are continued and the people of Castries East are treated like citizens of Saint Lucia.

“I hope that the government does not victimize my constituency for supporting me,” Pierre declared.

New Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, had indicated at his swearing in earlier this week, that he wanted to co-operate with the opposition.

Pierre said he hoped the new Prime Minister sticks to his promises.

He expressed his deep gratitude to the people of his constituency, saying:

“I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart. They stayed with me, they stuck with me and I won this election with a comfortable majority. It is all thanks to them, to my team, these people who voted for me all over the years.”

Pierre defeated newcomer, Fortuna Belrose in the general elections.

The preliminary count showed him ahead by over three hundred votes.

    Why is he afraid now when that was the treatment they gave to many supporters of the opposing party when they were in power. My advice to Mr. Pierre is to try his best to work along side the new government to make our St. Lucia a better place. What we need is unity to bring St. Lucia back to form, back to a place where its people and visitorsare no llonger afraid to walk. And to bring back the fear of God in our land

    Pip you have selected memory you when in office was guilty of victimisation you are one of the worse perpetrators of that vile abuse of power.
    Infact you were even worse you joined the SLP brigade of elitist, you even victimised Labour supporters who dared to question you or your leader.

    “He indicated that he is ready to work for the people” SERIOUSLY?!!!!!! It took 20 years for you to be ready to work for the people? Is this IDIOTIC MORON serious? Only now that the opposition leader position I available? You will NEVER be in that position. Earnest Hilaire is far more fitting than you are. You need to go gardening. For the first time you went around your constituency in a flat van, yes a flat van, took your head out of the clouds begging people to ” vote for me!” It had to take the one you claimed to be the parachute candidate, to get you to attempt to do your job? You don’t care about the people of Castries East; you care about you pocket, Philip Jack Pierre. The parachute candidate had you running around like a headless chicken. Mr. The Horrible Philip J Pierre, I deeply sympathize with you as Zot Ped, Zot Ped, Zot Ped. It’s your time to retire because I strongly believe that you are tired.

    Mr. Pierre, I strongly believe all the comments made against you.

    You have the same disposition like the late Romanous Lansiquote.

    Your novelty gone and it is my sincere opinion that you should get out of politics before it’s too late and you end up like Kenny/Tony.

    We are a small nation and should not return injustice for another injustice. We all must participate in the healing process for the good of our country. Insults, negative remarks and ill feelings will only foster a continuation of divide and rule politics to the detriment of our country. Let us move forward as sons and daughters of Saint Lucia and love the land that gave us birth. Let us renew our commitment to our land our people and our future. Let the hands of God guide our leaders so that that the decisions that they make are in the best interest of the people and the nation. God bless our leaders, God bless Saint Lucia.

    PIP, you forgot what you and your Government did to David Samuels at Radio St. Lucia? You forgot what you in particular did to Ivor Daniel at your Ministry. I could spend the whole day listing people for you but I believe you got the message already so I will stop there. Removing Labour party hacks like Chazzie in Martinique and Shelton Daniel at Radio St. Lucia can never be victimization. Its all for the greater good and the good of St. Lucia.

    I don’t get why most slp supporters are so up tight now that they lost.. Wishing bad for the country and making ridiculous petty statements which exposes ignorance.. They fail to realize that the negativity they are calling on the country will also affect them and their families. Elections have come and gone. The people made their decision. Time to move on to foster progress in out nation.. Give the new government a real chance see what they do, if they don’t do well vote them out. But for now all this unnecessary drama is just further dividing you all from your friends, colleagues and creating a gap in the country… #changeishere

      All the right words used. WELL said!!!! It stems from the top; bitterness and anger. People are so resistant to change but change is the only constant. What i realize though, it’s the people most affected that are angry; the ones who want it all for themselves. We all deserve a piece of what’s being offered however, the opposition didn’t see it that way; hence the reason for them being voted out. Only a few benefited and they’re the ones wishing ill for the country. I wish them well.

    SMH at PIP. People trust me, victimization by PIP and his crew was so high. it’s a shame. He knew that he victimised so many people that is why he made that statement. Victimisation or not, Shelton Daniel, Allison Jean, Shazee, Silas Wilson, Daryl Raymond,, Vaughn Edwin etc. I think i will stop here MUST ALL GO. I personally find that by Monday morning none of the aforementioned and those others all u create positions for SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO ENTER government officers. Last time Allison Jean change locks on the minister’s door same night of elections, but all now your secretary still there and Allison ain’t change no locks yet. SMH. I HOPE THEY VICTIMIZE THESE RETIREES and retire them out of the public service for good.

    Pierre has always been a joker. No wonder Kenny never thought much of him. S.L.P.’s legacy is:

    The Labour Party is excellent at accusing others of doing the very things that they have perfected.
    Let us all work towards ridding our people of their mendicant mentality!
