Press Release:- The Saint Lucia Labour Party is a political party which adheres steadfastly to its principles and in its policies and actions, is strictly guided by these.
In selecting its candidates for general elections, the Saint Lucia Labour Party has in place, a process that has been approved by its membership and which it follows to the letter because the Party is a disciplined organisation.
All those aspiring to be the party’s candidates for general elections are made fully aware of that process, its conditions and regulations and are expected to abide by its outcome.
It is with regret, therefore, that the Saint Lucia Labour Party has observed that, one of the persons who was vying for selection to represent the Party in the constituency of Choiseul at the forthcoming general elections, has in conjunction with others, publicly vented his disappointment with his non-selection.
While the Party understands the disappointment of defeat and is sympathetic toward those not satisfied by the outcome, the Party will not however countenance or tolerate behaviour by any member that may damage the image of the Party.
The leadership of the Party is meeting with its membership in Choiseul to bring closure to this matter.
It is important that we all do not lose sight of what is of paramount interest to the people of Saint Lucia at this time; and that is the removal of the inept and vindictive Allen Chastanet UWP Government from the backs of the Saint Lucian people.
It is imperative that we all unite to accomplish what is now our duty to ourselves and our children.
The SLP wishes to stress that no individual is bigger than the Party and the Party is not bigger than the country.
That is why the SLP in government will always act in the interests of the people and will be responsible in its governance.
