SLP Expects Full Slate Of Election Candidates By End Of July, 2020

The opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) expects to have its full slate of election candidates by the end of July, party leader Philip J. Pierre says.

“Hopefully we should have all our candidates by the end of next month,” the Castries East MP told reporters Thursday afternoon.

The SLP has so far announced the endorsement of five candidates, in addition to its current six sitting MPs.

Those the party says it has endorsed Emma Hippolyte (Soufriere), Wayne Girard (Anse La Raye-Canaries), Alfred Prospere (Dennery South) and Joachim Henry (Castries South East) and Guibion Ferdinand (Micoud South).

“We are not wasting time – we are being very cautious,” Philip J. Pierre said in response to observations that people have been calling on the opposition to name its slate.

“We have two fascinating candidates for Choiseul,” he asserted, adding that very soon an announcement will be made in connection with that constituency.

“All I can tell you is – you saw for yourself, the people in Choiseul are ready and you saw the reaction of the parliamentary rep, he is actually very concerned,” the SLP leader declared.

Local reports indicate that Pierre was well received by Choiseul constituents on Saturday when he  visited their community and they expressed support for his leadership.

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet whose United Workers Party (UWP) won the June 6, 2016 general elections by a margin of 11 to 6, recently indicated that elections will be held very soon.

The SLP also recently announced the official start of its election campaign.

    • The UWP has Chastanet who is wicked leaders that we cannot trust. SLP has Pierre who is weak and not ready to lead and has as a deputy Hilaire (Jafallie) whom we cannot trust. Lord help St.Lucia. What has this country done to deserve this United Worthless People And this Several Lazy People or Several ‘Lapo’ People?

  1. Finally the truth that everyone was expecting to hear. All six seating MP’s are candidates for the next election. PIP will Kenny allow you to lead him after he wins the Vieux Fort South seat. Power Corrupts, Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely. Lesson there to be learnt. Vieux Fort South needs a new candidate, take it or leave it.

  2. I. Think it’s time to send Kenny on political retirement vieux fort needs a new candidate for all this years Kenny has left this place like a dumpster this man is a failure he has nothing more to offer this is a disrespect to vieux fort to impose that empty lame man on their backs again .Kenny has outdone his time please pip don’t put the south through that get someone with vision for the south if you don’t that sit will me lost Mark my words

  3. And stop this power power struggle it’s causing the nation too much trouble. The atmosphere is right for a 79 debacle all over. Best solution a new Vieux Fort South candidate cause whoever UWP sends will be defeated by Kenny. Then comes trouble Kenny will not work under a since like PIP.

  4. Kenny Anthony is the worst poison SLP
    Have presently..That Jackass Should just Resign and we Slp ok.with that

  5. Who’s the candidate 4 micoud north. We want to vote labor, bcuz of the very lack lusture representation we get from our present MP. But the names I’m hearing 4 micoud north, are even more disgusting. Willward Charles, a man who made it his company rule, Dat none of his workers don’t give a micoudian a ride on any of his vehicles. CassianHenry, a son of the soil, who stayed away from da ppl all ov his life, and the most interesting candidate, a very young son of the soil, Dean Descartes, relatively unknown. He cud hv alot to offer, but in my opinion, he’s to green a rookie to stand up in that revolution called elective politics. He doesn’t even have work experience, only place I’ve known him to work is a short stint with the football association. This young man needs to be put to ripe, n taught to become a fighter, till next elections, and SLP, give us a wow factor candidate, and u all will create history in micoud north this election. Mark my word..

  6. Just be careful for what you ask for – you may get something that you have to live with.
    It’s not like fishing if you pull in something you don’t like, then you throw it back in. This
    thing has killed a lot of guys. Nixon saw what was coming, he gave up, Ford took over
    it killed both of them:- Trump will not wait to be wiped out by Biden; he will rather resign
    to save face. His Ego is bigger than his guts and his pride, after loosing an election will
    kill him. I would be sorry for the next President, oh the stress, who wants that? from now
    on you will have a series of a one term President for a long while. It is fearful for all those
    of colour, Latino, Asian.The world economy is at stake.Seek ye first the Kingdom of God.

  7. I have said it already I just want what’s best for my country,but both parties are the same ,this term is my turn next term is my turn this is what both of them are saying to each other ,they don’t really care about us the voters they only care about their immediate families and friends!!! and this is the bottom line!!! And here is why our at. Lucia will never go forward!!!God please make SLU better,I beg you oh!!
