Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has asserted that the transformation of this country is not an overnight exercise.
“This is a journey that will take time,” he declared in a post on his official Facebook page Tuesday.
“Along this journey we have met communities of “naysayers”, “doubting Thomases” and “prophets of doom and gloom”. We have met communities of pessimism. We have passed groups voicing messages of negativity and “do nothing,” Chastanet noted.
On the other hand, he observed that on “this journey, we have also encountered many communities of believers, and even more voices of positivity and hope, and they are boarding the bus of optimism, as they know where it is headed.”
According to the PM, they want to be part of this journey.
“We will not betray their confidence. We are not afraid. We are not alone. We are All In as we Build a Stronger Saint Lucia Together,” Chastanet declared.
Just recently, the PM announced that general elections will be held soon and the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party has declared the official start of election campaigning.
Saint Lucia last went to the polls on June 6, 2016 when the current ruling United Workers Party (UWP) swept to power by a margin of 11 to 6.
