SLP vows to review citizenship granted by UWP under CIP

Press Release:-The Saint Lucia Labour Party continues to express its deepest concern with the actions of the Allen Chastanet Administration which serves to undermine the integrity and reputation of the Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP).

The Labour Party believes that the removal of the US$3 million net worth, the cheapening of the level of donation as a qualifying investment and the removal of the annual limit of 500 applications and the guarantee of processing all Desert Star Holdings (DSH) applicants in 35 days should all be reconsidered for the sake of the reputation of Saint Lucia.

These changes will undoubtedly undermine the national security safeguards which were embedded in the setting up of the CIP.

DSH is a controversial development proposed for the southern community of Vieux Fort including a race track covering over 700 acres. The development has generated national condemnation because of the terms of the agreement which includes leasing land at $1 per acre for 99 years.

The SLP wishes to inform that a Labour Party Government will review every citizenship granted by the UWP under these new requirements.

The Labour Party believes that the CIP should be presented as a premium, selective and highly valued option and not sold as the cheapest option available to any and everybody.

    What the SLP is sayig, they want to attract people with money to give us work, not people to come to build a home and take from us, the little that we have. The SLP want to attract people who can create EMPLOYMENT, sponsor sclourships to studients, to sports etc

    We are taking our country back 🔙 In the next general election, if not sooner.
    The IMF is due on Island next week.
    Evil Chastanet will buckle under his own evilness.

    The pitons are still there. When the decease prime minister Sir John was negotiating with investors people cry and complain and said it won’t be good for St Lucia, but it was one of the best investment ever happen in St Lucia, hundreds of people and families feed their families with the same monies they were complaining about. So I say Mr prime minister St lucians need work so let the project take place. Most of the people that want project to stop is political hacks,
