Former UWP Chairman tells new government to stay focused

Former United Workers Party (UWP) Chairman, Michael Flood, has urged the new administration of Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, to remain focused.

“Don’t be like the previous administration where they went into hibernation the minute they were appointed to office and do not account to the public,” Flood advised.

He expressed the view that after the current cabinet of ministers has done its forensic analysis of where things are, they need to report to the people and continue doing so.

Flood said he would strongly advise cabinet ministers to hold a press conference once every month.

He asserted that by so doing, they would be able to keep the people of this country abreast of what is happening.

Flood stated:

“When it is good tell them and when it is bad come and tell Saint Lucians, look, in as much as we are working hard to get things organized, it is not coming as quickly as we want or as we expected, but however we are working towards bettering things.”

The former UWP Chairman felt that the current government has a good and long future.

The UWP won the June 6, 2016 general elections by a margin of 11 to the then ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party’s six seats.

          You must be a comedian, right. the only thing that your party brought was hardship. And just to let you know your arrogance and aggression lost the election for your party, so keep it up, as a UWP supporter thanks for the help in winning the elections.

    SAD BUT TRUE Iam not sure which year you are living in.
    You were obviously not around when UWP delivered st. Lucia into the modern era. Look around and you see the UWP stamp on 90% of what is important in st. Lucia.

    You should have heard Sir John say Fter the SLP collapse in 1982 when UWP was called to rescue st. Lucia it took him mAny years before he could see the light again.

    Sir John had to come back again in 2006 and at 80 years whip the SLP and Dr. Anthony.

    Are you aware that their was an election earlier this month and UWP won 11~6. If not buy a past copy of the voice and read it.
    Dr.Anthony almost lost his seat and has since run awAy.
    Hilaire won his seat by a thread of his underwear even as he poured big bucks into his campaign.
    Philip Pierre cAme through with a SAD face.
    So that is the state of the SLP. Now you go help SLP look for a new leader and leave the duly elected government to do the business of state. What the people have happily and overwhelmingly asked them to do.
