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.
