Castries Central MP, Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, Thursday night urged voters in her constituency to maintain the status quo at the next general elections.
“People of Castries Central, now is not the time to change. Now is the time to give the United Workers Party a mandate – a new mandate, a fresh mandate,” Flood-Beaubrun asserted during an appearance on Flambeau Forum.
In this regard, the Saint Lucia Foreign Minister declared that the true test of leadership is not in good times, but in hard times.
She observed that unprecedented hard times are here.
“We have faced what we can liken to the Third World War with the COVID pandemic,” the MP said.
“This is not about trying a ting,” Flood-Beaubrun explained.
“It is about recognising that in these turbulent waters, the ship has been steered – the captain is focussed. The captain has his hand on the wheel and he is in control of that ship,” she stated.
“I am so proud to serve under such a leader,” Flood-Beaubrun declared in relation to Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet.
She also said she was proud to serve in a party that does not ‘tokenise’ women, values every citizen, acknowledges the dignity of the human person and looks after everyone
As a result, the Castries Central MP expressed the view that now’s the time to give the ruling party a fresh mandate to continue the work it is doing.
“Our party is strong – our party is committed. But we need to win each and every seat and like in all elections, Castries Central needs to come home first,” the MP stated.
“Let’s create history again – we have done it many times,” she urged her constituents.
