The opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has officially opened its election campaign headquarters at Independence City, Castries, declaring its readiness for the next elections.

“We are ready for elections whenever they are called,” stated SLP leader, Philip J. Pierre to applause from the gathering.

According to Pierre, the SLP is ready and equipped to accept the responsibility and take up the mantle of leading this country out of the economic and social morass into which the United Workers Party (UWP) administration of Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet has put it.

“Our party organisation is strong  as can be seen from the several successful constituency AGMs that have been held during the past month – the latest being Dennery South and Micoud South ,” he asserted.

“Our campaign machinery is well oiled and I am alerting SLP supporters to be ready.”

Pierre said he is pleased to be leading a group of honest, hardworking, experienced, knowledgeable and innovative candidates who will form the next SLP government.

The Castries East MP asserted that the event was not only about opening the SLP’s campaign headquarters, but also presenting the theme of the party’s election campaign – ‘Putting You First’.

He explained that he has always been a people centred servant, whether in his own business, as the MP for Castries East or as a cabinet minister.

Pierre stated it was for that reason he is proud of his record of service to this country and ready to continue serving the people at another level.

He accused the UWP administration of failing to understand its electoral mandate of making people its first responsibility.

“Instead with no shame, they have given away our prime land, some at one dollar an acre to foreigners. They have failed to protect our patrimony, our sovereign interests and safeguard the future of our country,” Pierre observed.

He said the UWP has proved to be vindictive and callous, using state power to persecute political opponents and innocent citizens.

“Yet they parade around this country describing themselves as ‘workers’. But I am compelled to ask: ‘Working for whom?’ We all know that this government has failed to work for you the people of Saint Lucia,” Pierre stated.
