Pierre says there’s a role for Kenny Anthony in SLP

Opposition leader, Philip J. Pierre, has asserted that there is a role for former Prime Minister, Doctor Kenny Anthony, in the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).

“Of course. Doctor Anthony was the Prime Minister for fifteen years and was leader of our party for twenty years- Doctor Anthony did well for Saint Lucia and the party,” Pierre said.

He declared that there is room in the SLP for everyone.

According to Pierre, the party welcomes the contribution Anthony has made and will make.

Anthony led the SLP to an 11 to 6 defeat in the June 6, 2016 general elections, following which he stepped down as party leader.

“Our party wants to be like a large umbrella accepting all men and women of goodwill,” the SLP leader stated.

Responding to a question about whether he was “leadership material”, Pierre said he did not know what that means.

He observed that he has led the most important government ministries in the country.

Pierre has held various portfolios in government including Tourism, Commerce, Investment, Infrastructure, Port Services and Transport.

He has also served as Deputy Prime Minister.

“I don’t know what is the scale – how do you measure it? These are emotional terms – ‘not leadership material’; what does that mean?” The SLP leader said.

“Was I not good material in my ministries? Did I not do well in my ministries? I have won my seat five times – isn’t that leadership?  Do you win your seat because you are foolish or you are lucky?” He asked.

He noted that he also runs his own business.

Pierre expressed the view that questions about his leadership ability were being raised by his opponents who are against him politically and otherwise.

He requested tangible proof of their assertions.

Pierre declared that he has no problem with people questioning his leadership ability since he is in politics and expects people to do so.

“I have no ill feelings. I know the target is going to be me,” the SLP leader observed, adding that his focus is on improving the lives of the people of Saint Lucia.

    Pierre’s leadership skills are weak so he will always look back to Anthony. This is well known and said by everyone even those who are at his side and those watching his back, his team.
