Saint Lucia Opposition ‘Ready’ For Elections

The opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) says it is ready for elections, with many persons ready to represent the party at the polls.

So says SLP leader, Philip J. Pierre.

“I have people coming out of the woodwork,” Pierre told reporters this week.

He said they included young people with ability.

“It just shows that the labour party is ready and so many people are dissatisfied with the government,” the Castries East MP stated.

“Sometimes you have six candidates vying for one seat – it is very exciting. It shows that our party is growing and people are excited and most of all – people are dissatisfied with what is happening in the country,” Pierre asserted.

He expressed the view that the candidates presenting themselves to represent the SLP at the next elections would impress.

“There are young candidates; there are women; it’s a good mixture – you’ll be very excited,” Pierre declared.

General elections were last  held in Saint Lucia on 6 June 2016.

The result was a victory for the United Workers Party (UWP), which won eleven of the seventeen seats.

On 7 June 2016 UWP leader Allen Chastanet was sworn in as Prime Minister.


  1. Spineless Pierre! You were in the dark just like all of us during Kenny’s grand escapade with Grynberg.
    He chose to confide in the Earl instead of you!
    What leader are you?
    By the way, every time, and that is often, you speak of victimisation, I want to vomit!

    • Some of us with our compulsive obsession of our barren sea bed needs to be buried down there. Note to self the next time I run into the madam at brunch to remind her, to encourage her, to toss the urn one mile off the coast of Rudy John Beach.

  2. Pierre you are very correct your very position 3 others want it too. Every seat for any party attracts many candidates but what type and is there substance. They all know the pay cheque and benefits they can get wether they win or lose

  3. I would not vote for neither corruption
    Don’t ask me to vote for one of two evils. Something new clean fresh and Not contaminated is required
