Pierre: SLP was a good government

Philip J. Pierre, the leader of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has said that the party was a good government when in office, but lost the June 6, 2016 general elections.

Pierre told the Times that the SLP has to go into a mode of introspection.

“We have to look at what went wrong,” he said.

“We know we were a good government but the people of Saint Lucia did not think we did what it takes to reelect us,” Pierre told the Times.

He asserted that the SLP must become more inclusive and try to get as many people as possible to join.

The SLP leader spoke of the need to make the party’s policies clearer and ensure people understand them.

“The emphasis is going to be on communication – we have to speak to the electorate and we also have to strengthen the party,” Pierre said.

He also highlighted the need to improve the structures of the SLP.

    Good for who ? for Kenny , Leo Clarke. Claudius Francis and a few selected chosen ,not for the majority of suffering Lucians.
    Pierre will have to change this and convince the electorate that he will create an inclusive government for all Lucians.
    Pierre will also have to dismantle the nepotism that exist in the party and the party structure.
    Pierre has his work cut out to rebuild the party and its wounded supporters, rebuild trust return to core SLP values we have lost our way.
