Former Saint Lucia Prime Minister Stephenson King has been defending his credibility in the face of accusations that his silence amid criticism of the current PM, is tantamount to an endorsement of Allen Chastanet’s policies.
In response to assertions that this would affect his credibility and his political capital, King told reporters Tuesday that he is very much aware of his credibility.
“I am doing what I think is right,” the Castries North MP asserted.
“Certainly, you need not be worried,” he told the reporters outside parliament.
King disclosed that he will be running again in the next elections.
“Once the people request me to do it, I will do it as long as my health is in order – and my health is in fine shape,” he stated.
“I am ready to run with you,” he joked with reporters.
King won the Castries North seat by a massive margin, obtaining 3,774 votes to the 1,482 of the Saint Lucia Labour Party’s John Charlery in the last general elections in June 2016.
