Saint Lucia is ready to work with either Donald Trump or Joe Biden, whenever a winner is declared in the United States presidential election.
Prime Minister Allen Chastanet made this country’s position clear to reporters Monday.
“We will obviously work with whichever administration wins the election,” he explained.
More than 94 million ballots have been cast ahead of the US Election Day on Tuesday, over two-thirds of 2016′s turnout.
Prime Minister Chastanet described the United States as the biggest economy and the biggest political influencer in this region.
“Saint Lucia has a very good relationship with America and we – like everybody else, are waiting to se what’s going to happen,” he said in relation to the poll.
“I think it is very difficult to judge or make predictions on elections these days,” the PM explained.
He told reporters that what makes this US Presidential election more interesting is the number of people who have already voted.
“Obviously you have two very different ideologies at play here and we wait to see what the decision of the public of America is going to be,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister said.
Chastanet responded in the negative when asked whether he had a preference.
“No. We work with everyone,” he declared.
On the eve of Election Day, both the Trump and Biden campaigns were making their last-minute appeals to voters in swing states.
Biden has been ahead of Donald Trump in most national polls since the start of the year.
He has hovered around 50% in recent months and has had a 10-point lead on occasions.
