PM says civil service divided

Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, told a training session on governance that began here yesterday for members of cabinet and senior government officials that Saint Lucia’s civil service is very divided .

Chastanet declared that no one  seems to know where they are heading every day.

“When I ask the question ‘Do you think that you have been successful at your job?’ I won’t even begin to tell you the answers that I get,” the Prime Minister told the session.

He said people need to go to work every day knowing what they are trying to achieve.

“That’s the responsibility of leadership,”  Chastanet, who has responsibility for the public service, stated.

“Change never starts at the bottom; change starts at the top,” he said.

Chastanet spoke of the need to run a more efficient and accountable government where a greater return on resources that are being expended will be required.

He explained that the governance training session marked the beginning of the pursuit of that objective.
