Political Leader of the SLP and Leader of the Opposition Hon. Philip J. Pierre has made recommendations for the appointment of Opposition Senators, to Her Excellency Dame Pearlette Louisy, Governor General of Saint Lucia.
Mr. Joachim Henry, Candidate for Castries South East, Mr. Jerome Gedeon, Candidate for Dennery South and Mr. Guibion Ferdinand, Candidate for Micoud South have been selected to represent the interest of the Opposition in the Upper House.
The Leader of the Opposition says the selections were made to provide exposure and valuable experience to the new candidates who have expressed an interest in continuing their political careers. Hon. Pierre says he is confident that the team will raise the bar already established in the Senate and will do all in their power and authority to represent the people.
Changes can be expected during the term, as a rotation system will be used to engage the talents and services of Team Labour.
