Prime Minister Allen Chastanet says he is extremely blessed to to lead the ruling United Workers Party (UWP).
He described the organisation as being “such a great political party with so many creative, loving and brilliant people.”
The PM made the comments on his official Facebook page.
He expressed his gratitude to “our Flambeau family and friends” for turning out in such large numbers to support a ruling party fundraiser at Rodney Bay Saturday night.
“I thank you for your unwavering support, prayers and commitment as we continue the work of building a new and progressive Saint Lucia for the benefit of all,” the UWP leader wrote.
One of the organisers of the UWP fundraiser told St Lucia Times that the event met its objective.
It was disclosed that some 800 tickets at $50 each were all sold out.
According to the organiser, the event was not only a fundraiser but an opportunity to continue mobilising ruling party supporters.
The turnout was described as “massive’.
