Castries South MP, Dr. Ernest Hilaire, has urged people in his constituency to put aside the politics and work together.
In a post on his official Facebook page, Hilaire explained that Sunday was his Thanksgiving day, during which he attended three church services at Catholic, Pentecostal and Baptist Churches.
He described it as a fitting way to celebrate his victory and that of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) at the July 26 general elections.
“I spent the afternoon driving through the communities thanking everyone for their support and asking that we put aside the politics and work together to build a better country, to transform our constituency and build stronger communities,” Hilaire said.
“Today starts a new week, a new chapter and and a new beginning. I am excited about the future and what our country can achieve. I will get my marching orders and like every endeavour I have had to pursue, I promise to give my best. In fact, I want to be the best that I have been, God willing. I know we will succeed,” Hilaire’s Facebook post on Monday asserted.
He cited the words of a song he said he heard at church which kept ringing in his ears:
‘Ooh ooh ooh
The victory belongs to Jesus
The victory belongs to him’
“So I know we will succeed,” the Castries South MP declared.
