LPM leader urges PM to make statement on Henry

Lucian People’s Movement (LPM) leader Therold Prudent has called on Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, to issue a statement on reports that Minister in the Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries, Physical Planning, Natural Resources and Co-operatives, Senator Jimmy Henry, is to resign from the cabinet.

It has not been officially confirmed whether the resignation has been tendered.

Henry himself  told the Times  last week that he had no comment to make on the resignation reports.

“It is a matter that should trouble anyone,” LPM leader Therold Prudent said of the situation.

According to  Prudent, it seems that Prime Minister Chastanet and his administration are not transparent with the people of Saint Lucia.

“It would also appear that they have taken the mandate which was given to them for granted – as if they are always going to be in power and they don’t have to explain anything to the people of Saint Lucia,” Prudent said in an interview with the Times.

He spoke of the controversial $US 2.6 billion Desert Star Holdings Limited (DSH)  project, asserting that up to now people are in the dark as to what was actually signed.

“In this matter with the minister I would really like to appeal to Mr. Chastanet – you cannot continue to be so evasive, especially when questions are being asked,” the LPM leader stated.

He expressed the view that Chastanet needs to come out and tell the people of Saint Lucia what is going on.

“If there is anything going on let the people of Saint Lucia know and if there isn’t anything going on you still have to come out and clear the air,” Prudent declared.

“I am hoping that he will do that by this week,” he remarked.

Prudent said Chastanet should not allow the carnival season to go through believing that the issues can be swept under the rug.

“I am appealing to him – by this week come out and let the people of Saint Lucia know exactly what is going on and if there isn’t anything, we will accept that there is nothing,” the LPM official told the Times.

    Amen, LPM. But we all know that the UWP is not a group based on Principle or morality. If they have to deal with ‘Lament’ then they will have to deal with Ubaldus. And one wonders why the crime rate is so high or has quadrupled since the uwp gained power in St. Lucia 🇱🇨. More to come. They must pay for the wrongs they’ve done to the people of this Nation.

    You guys are trying to ponce on a opportunity. Take you all time. Chastanet is in-charge. If it did happen he will be dealt with like Richard Frederick was by the UWP.

    The reality is this government appear to be normalizing crime. There is ubaldus and look now you have Henry. This is not to forget all the murmur about Guy Joseph. If truth be told reality has bitten this man and he is now realising the reality of occupying the top job. There lies the danger for though he know the correct thing to do his arrogance and dictatorial tendencies will dictate that he do the wrong thing

    When Mr. Castanets became PM, I thought he would have brought a servant leadership style of government to the political landscape. Instead, the antiquated style of politics seems firmly entrenched as ever. Opaqueness, authoritarianism, malfeasance and ineptitude are all part and parcel of this government. The majority of citizens just want a fair chance of improving their lot. They voted for you (UWP) hoping that you would keep your ‘commitments’ only to be severely disappointed. Some people are advocating that we need to change the change but the alternative is no better. Lucians, stop voting for Party and closely scrutinize the individual candidates. Too many of these candidates are of flawed character. T he government is only as good as the people in it. People, we deserve much better from our elected officials.

    Chas is an A… He has no leadership skill. The WORSE pm in our history. Additionally, how could someone in leadership even associate themselves with the likes of Ulric Mondesir?

      Cornelia Jacob a useless piece of Sh***, is saying that the person who was voted in by the majority, by far, has no leadership skills. I want you to start by examining leadership from the home. Couldn’t get a job and cannot perform when given a job and you talking about leadership. Chastanet fired Richard Frederick and will fire Jimmy Henry if necessary unlike your Kenny Anthony who could not fire Stanley Felix for the benefit of the country. “CHAS IS IN CHARGE”

    The propaganda machine of the opposition is at work and doing a fine job at that. Why waste time on objecting and responding to propaganda when there’s work to be done? At what point will you cut off and say lets ignore and move on?

    Prudent, what statement needs to ne made? All we have heard is mere speculations. If Henry had committed a crime at the airport then let us out put pressure on immigration or the police for saying nothing. Tonight I listened to report on number of calls made for bus fires and accidents. I also heard of the guy who entered some vehicles being taken to court. Why can’t the police indicate that they are investigating a matter relating to Jimmy Henry.

    You of all persons should understand why a statement has not been given by the Prime Minister. Unlike you all he cannot attend to every speculation made.

    Honestly Prudent, Don t show up on vacation and play as if you are so in tunedtunes with what’s going on. Deal right not with speculations.
