UWP denies disunity

The General Secretary of the ruling United Workers Party (UWP), has rejected suggestions that it is only a matter of time before infighting breaks out in the new  government of Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet.

Detractors have pointed to previous internal differences in the UWP as evidence that the new administration will not hold together.

However UWP General Secretary, Oswald Augustin has said that if the party were not unified he would not be there.

“The party is more than unified,” Augustin declared.

He asserted that earlier this week the party had a meeting where the camaraderie was evident.

“The hugs, the everything – it is a unified party,” the UWP General Secretary said.

Shortly before the June 6, 20 16 general elections, former party leader, Stephenson King, who had distanced himself from the party after losing the leadership race to Allen Chastanet, returned to active campaigning with the UWP.

Chastanet has admitted that the two men had their differences, but have worked them out.

    On this subject let the dust of election settle then we will all see if the party is united or not. I think the party needs at least 100 days in office to make such a determination.

    All they did was fight each, talk about each other, there is nothing but corruption and it had been that way for along time. The fighting didn’t stop before elections, how I’m I to know if it will stop ever. So now the country will be ran with corruption.

    To all of you talking, St. Lucian spoke loudly June 6th, If the UWP starts fighting then we know what to do, I am awaiting a report on all your all allegations of corruption soon, All the last minute contracts that were given through the Taiwanese funds and some government funding and giving PS and DPS permanent jobs. I wonder what word to use to describe it. All you SLP hacks look out for Alva, PIP and Hillarie, boxing match soon. Remember Alva was put in moo,moo mode just before election ? Just a few weeks prior he was allowed on platform to speak, stay tuned for more live action.

      Hmmm, ask Guy Joseph to return the 35 million he took for himself and his brothers by giving themselves contracts, while you were sleeping hungry at nights. The US is already investigating his Bank accounts.

    I agree with you EHE we know what to do , the New elected government would have to think twice before they do anything that is not in accordance with the manifesto and all the promises they made, they are being watched very closely, persons , businesses both here and abroad are waiting and watching.
    We are moving on and all the comments being made for now, will not remove how the people of St, Lucia made up their minds, when they went to the polls that is what we have to remember.
    I wish them all the best , and i pray that they work together and accept their portfolio seriously and work real hard and and be as honest as they can not giving all the work to their families and friends but to share the work equally .
    For now all i am waiting for is the promise on VAT when that is done then I will know how serious they really are and to increase the salaries for the civil servants whose increase was taken away from them they got nothing, that they also work with the youth who are talented so they can get the help and the scholarships that is needed to continue to put St. Lucia on the map, finally to sort out the other problems that are obstacles for St. Lucia.
    UWP work the five to thrive , work with your manifesto work honestly, avoid at all costs any confusion, or disunity . Hopefully that the next election based on your performance your being in office would not have been in vain.

    I am seeing here some sorry SLP losers hoping for the government to fall but if it succeeds their hands will be stretched out long for the benefits. Hypocrities.

    You should be ashamed. Foreign heads of state, regionally and internationally sending good wishes and expressing success and some dejected st. Lucian SLP’s hoping for bad. Following the actions of Dr. Anthony a sore and dejected loser

      Ha…we want to see the “winners” in action. So far Nothing 🙂

      When we return in power soon, many of you will be sorry :)))

    I will remember Dr Anthony for his courage to take difficult but necessary decision to save this country, even when he knew it would cost him the election. This is the hallmark of a true leader.

    St.lucia is always asking for change from both parties, but every time one of them wins they just have to follow what was planned before they got in power plus try to fit inn all which was promised to you. If there is confusion within the party they shouldn’t be fit to run the country. And further more he is not even swon in as yet another there is a dispute already. What mentorship are you sending to the country and also your self. It’s a bad reputation. Politicians should be someone we can look up too.

    After all the elections I’ve witnessed, the one thing that pisses me off is that every time SLP losses they just don’t know how to accept it. Their amo is trying to point out problems others may have as if they were perfect. Just accept defeat and give the guys a chance, if they fail we know what to do, but please SLP shut up. You guys accusing the UWP of all the things you have done. Don’t judge please everyone is not like you.
