Pierre recommended as opposition leader

Philip J. Pierre has been recommended by elected members of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), to become leader of the parliamentary opposition, well-informed sources have told the Times.

According to the sources, Pierre was unanimously recommended at a meeting of the SLP’s six elected members on Friday.

The Castries East MP is also the first Deputy Political Leader of the labour party.

On the night that the SLP lost the June 6, 2016 general elections, labour party leader and former Prime Minister, Doctor Kenny Anthony, announced that he would step down and would not be opposition leader.

Anthony formally resigned as SLP leader last week.

The move paves the way for a national council meeting of the party, where Pierre will be endorsed to succeed him, according to party insiders.

An open election will later take place for the position at the next SLP convention slated for later this year, according to information.

A formal letter informing the Governor General of the choice of opposition leader made by the SLP’s elected members has already been dispatched, the Times has been informed.

The SLP lost the last general elections by a margin of 11 to 6.
