Government is sticking to the plan

PRESS RELEASE:-The Government of Saint Lucia is pleased to announce that at the next Sitting of Parliament scheduled for Tuesday, August 16, 2016 two bills which reflect the fulfilment of key election promises to the nation will be tabled.

One of the bills to come before the Parliament will address the much anticipated fifty (50) percent reduction in vehicle license fees while the other bill concerns the implementation of an Amnesty Period for the benefit of persons who have accumulated unpaid medical fees with the national hospitals.

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet and Cabinet members continue to stand by the “Five to Stay Alive” Plan that at its core, promised that genuine efforts will be made to bring relief to every Saint Lucian. The prime minister has stated publicly that dearest to his heart is to have a targeted amnesty on hospital fees at both the Victoria and St. Jude Hospitals.

Also nearing fulfilment are the government’s promises to double the subsidy for the school feeding programme as well as bus subsidies. Both initiatives are expected to come into effect at the commencement of the new academic year.

    I am staying Mute on this subject. Because at the End of the day, monies that have been collecting for Nation building, is now dwindling by Allen (the boy) and the 4 other UWP Prime Ministers on this Island. They have all given themselves the ‘5 to stay alive kits.’ Everyone goes to their respective banks smiling to enjoy their ‘5 to stay alive kits,’ while the poor Black UWP supporters are given and Dangling carrot before their faces. Lol.

    u uwp ppl cannot let someone air their views. I am for neither party and I tell u for those who believe that things will get better under this party, continue to day dream. Go start reading about the global economies and what they predicting for growth and development in the next 5 years and see if u still feel optimistic .I feel so ashamed sometimes with what I read here. our ppl do not read nor want to acquire knowledge so they leave in ignorance.
