Veteran broadcast journalist Timothy Poleon won’t be part of any Saint Lucia election race.

Last year he said he was considering a run.

However the award-winning Talk Show Host and Television News presenter announced Wednesday that he had abandoned the idea.

“I will not be contesting any general election in Saint Lucia,” Poleon explained.

He made the disclosure during his popular radio call-in programme, Newsspin. 

“I have made up my mind on this issue,” Poleon told his listeners.

Poleon said he was approached on several occasions, even recently.

On previous occasions, he had revealed that people wanted him to run in Castries South.

But he would not be drawn in regard to under which political banner he would have campaigned.

“But I’ve decided that I really don’t want to. It’s a while I’ve come to that conclusion,” he stated on Wednesday.

At last two individuals who called Newsspin after Poleon’s announcement supported his decision to stay out of elective politics.

Health Minister Mary Isaac unsuccessfully contested the Castries South seat in the last elections for the current ruling United Workers Party.

At the same time current MP Dr. Ernest Hilaire has expressed confidence that he will be re-elected.
