SLP: Will there be political fallout?

The Saint Lucia Labour Party notes in a Press Release dated Monday March 6th 2017,  the Ministry of Equity, Social Justice, Empowerment informed the public that a review of all public assistance/disability grants will take place.

Considering recent statements by the Minister responsible for the Ministries of Equity, Social Justice, Empowerment, Hon Lenard Montoute on Wednesday March 1st 2017 on the review of the NICE Program where he declared that  “Over 90% of the employees in the NICE Program are Labour Party supporters…” hence there would be “no political fallout,” the SLP hopes that the fate of the unfortunate citizens receiving public assistance will not be the same as the NICE workers.

The Saint Lucia Labour Party calls on the government to be fully transparent in the review and resist the temptation of political interference in the execution of the review.

    I know of two parents who are able and the previous government were giving them $400.00 for their four children and these parents are SLP supporters. It is true that during SLP government only SLPS supporters benefited from this funds. SLP did a lot of wickedness. Giving someone public funds need to be properly assessed.

    The Labour party was never transparent in their dealings with nice program or any other program which the S.L.P. implemented. But the Current Government won’t follow suite, because that’s not their style.
