The opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has declared that at this time of Saint Lucia’s acutest economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic and a ‘spendthrift and inept Prime Minister’,it is time to return people to the centre of governance.

The declaration came in a post on the SLP’s official Facebook page.

The post is reproduced below:

SLP Campaign Slogan “Putting You First”

For almost five years, this UWP Government has disrespected you, victimized you, marginalized you and belittled you-

You, the NICE worker- terminated
The Fisherfolk – Your Marketing Corporation given away
The Banana farmer – now unable to sell your bananas
Secondary school students – your laptop snatched away
National Trust members –denigrated
Public servants- turned into political tools

The UWP has not worked for you!
They worked for: friends, who needed a fresh start
Family, who needed to own a school

Speculators who craved to profit from operating Government payments;
They worked For foreign hoteliers,
For Millionaire Golf course owners from Cabot
And For the Horses of DSH.
It is always about them!

And at this time of our acutest economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic and a spendthrift and inept Prime Minister, at this time of massive unemployment, pennilessness and hunger, the Government spends millions on road construction and fritters away $78 million IMF income support funds on a garbage dump, among other irrelevant projects.

It is time to bring a halt to this. It is time to return the people to the centre of governance – the people’s needs, the people’s lands, their patrimony, their heritage, their culture, and their history.

The Saint Lucia Labour Party will put the people first.

A Saint Labour Party Government will put you first- you the student, you the youth, you the elderly, you the farmer, you the health care worker, you the public servant, you the police officer, you the Minibus driver, you the vendor, you the fisher folk, you the creative, you the entrepreneur, you the community, you the people!

The Saint Lucia Labour Party- Putting You First!
