Castries Mayor Hints He Could Contest The Next Elections

Castries Mayor Peterson Francis, asserting that he is a politician, has hinted to reporters here that he could contest the next general elections.

In answer to the question of whether he would run, Francis disclosed that he has been bombarded with that query.

“As I said, I am a politician and if the opportunity presents itself I’ll consider it,” he stated.

The Castries Mayor did not go into details.

Shortly before the last general elections in 2016 Francis, who was already the United Workers Party (UWP) endorsed candidate for Castries Central, “notified the party of his decision, after careful analysis, to stand down as a candidate, but to support, wholeheartedly, the party’s nominee to replace him in that traditional UWP stronghold,” according to a party statement.

The replacement was Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, who went on to win the seat.

Flood-Beaubrun first won the seat in 1997.


  1. GOOD RIDDANCE !!! This is the kind of headline I like to read. Save us the trouble tender your resignation NOW and don’t let the door hit you in your black ass on your way out. A brawta his you drag teefing G.U.Y. and Dear Allen with you.

  2. And the sky is blue…. the real question is which seat will he contest? Will he bowl out sarah , Mary or Fedee?

  3. Why do some people feel they must be in politics to make a contribution to their country.
    Mayor pls continue your valuable and admirable effort of transformation of Castries into a real city. We need you there.
    I am a strong supporter your work, but I will NOT vote for you in elections.

  4. Learn to read and write first. ..then learn to speak properly and maybe just maybe …but then again the current PM can’t either. Ah well

  5. Gassa, stay in de council. Your work is appreciated and beneficial. Doh go in de government. Finish what you started. Seem to me that you are running away from Ras Ipas…scaredy cat.

    • lol no this guy wants more power and authority. Remember well he was the original UWP candidate for Castries Central. This Mayor stint was just a five year audition for a mp seat in the 2021 election. It’s obvious for anyone to see.

  6. A position can be obtained by two ways- either by a recruitment process with a job interview etc OR being elected by ” the people” ! He got the mayorship role through neither!!!!!I support some of his work but would never vote for him as he is deeply affiliated with a rat infested team!

    • His recent record for the residents in the city would ensure he would lose. Don’t waste your time and ours Pitonson.
