Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) leader, Philip J. Pierre has promised an elected labour government of transparency and inclusion, where there will never be a ‘Pajoah letter’ and an administration in conflict with the Saint Lucia National Trust.

Speaking to Stanley Lucien of HTS, Pierre recalled that his party has spoken extensively on the Pajoah letter, direct awards and the government’s direct victimisation of people who are perceived not to be supporters of the ruling United Workers Party (UWP).

“It is now left for the people to decide whether a minister of government can guarantee 62 million dollars worth of work and the prime minister says nothing about it. It is up to the people to decide whether the prime minister will allow one of his ministers to say ‘Opposition members have just begun to cry’ and effect it by firing 100 percent of the NICE workers,” the SLP leader stated Friday as he filed nomination papers for Castries East, where he is the incumbent.

Pierre also noted that the SLP had spoken out when the prime minister allowed a minister to say that if you do not support the government, you ought not to get anything for your constituency.

He said people have an opportunity to decide on election day on July 26, adding that the SLP can offer a government where under his watch, none of his ministers will behave in such a manner.

“We will never have a Pajoah letter; we will never be in conflict with the National Trust; we will never say that Jeannine Compton cannot get a job just because ‘I say so’. The government of the labour party will not get involved in that kind of behaviour,” Pierre asserted.
