The nomination has to be approved by the governor general.

A press conference announcing the nomination was held Tuesday afternoon.

  3. We have short memories when it is convenient. Let me remind all party hacks particular those who see no wrong with The Saint Lucia Labour Party. The current General Secretary of the CSA went in a run off with Cyrian (Thousand) Lansiquot for the Canaries/Anse La Ray constituency. Wasn't the then and still is the General Secretary. Let me add more salt to the injury. Wasn't he also a senator appointed by the ruling SLP party. I didn't hear anyone calling for his resignation.

  6. Mary isn't doing anything different from trade unionist like Julian Delauney,Gilroy Satney, president and general secretary respectively of the Teachers' union. Martin Satney general secretary of CSA. All former executive members of these organization. Didn't these guys frustrated the then John Compton administration? What happened next they all bailed out and left teachers and civil servants stranded. They all got their big jobs. People this is a democratic state I believe and Mary is entitled to her freedom of association. Question: wasn't Mary Issac a member of the SLP as President of the CSA? So what is so wrong with her nomination? Saint Lucian wake up and throw the yellow and blue ribbons out of your windows. We are too partisan in this country we are stifling progress just because of political colors.

  13. People that are Red will say that all what the PM said was true. On the other hand people who are Yellow will say that all what Mary said was true. Then lets take it to the Upper House where everybody enjoys immunity and lets see what happens.

  14. The members need to move a motion of no confidence. To have someone who is clearly political cannot appear to be unbiased. The union members need to move in droves and withdraw their funds from this biased organisation which for years has been infiltrated by political hacks. Congrats to Miss Mary on her future ambitions but the public service votes she appears to have promised the uwp party will not come through. This appears like an opportunist move.

  24. From the onset I said to Saint Lucians check this woman, she has been bitter and now she has shown her colours. I have no interest in what party she support, however she has been deneying she had alterior motives. I ask the question, why use the people whom you swear to represent.

  28. LUCIANS BEFORE YOU ALL PUT "X" NEXT TO PEOPLE NAMES. DO SOME RESEARCH, STUDY THEIR BACKGROUND!!

    Some of you DOLTISH, voting for people who have no background or qualifications as leaders for your country.

    You wonder why your country is in a mess? That's part of it.

    YOU SHOULD ASK YOUR SELF:

    Will my life be better next year or in 5 years if I vote for this politician or political party. If the answer is NO. You should not be voting for them.

    STOP BEING DOLTISH VOTE IN YOUR BEST INTEREST, IT''s ALL ABOUT YOU AND WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR FAMILY AND CHILDREN.

    These people have interest in their pockets. You got to think about you !!

    THIS ELECTION IS ALL ABOUT YOU !!

  29. REMEMBER I TELL YOU POLITICS IS THIS COUNTRY IS THE BIGGEST BULLSHIT EVER !!

    you think any of these people working to make this country better? Doubt it. IT's THEIR POCKET FIRST.

    I have no faith in the GOVERMENTS OF THIS COUNTRY, IT's just NEPOTISUM AS USUAL.

    Now a part of me wants the LPM TO WIN

    CAUSE NOW IT WILL NEUTRALIZE THE PLAYING FIELD, CREATE COMPETITION, AND MAKE THESE TWO PARTIES(UWP , SLP) buckle up.

  30. TO those who are annoyed at Mary.Remember John Compton, George Charles and others, who were union reps who took the government of the day to task for the rights of workers. To all who think it is a sell out if I read mary well she will not compromise her integrity and the rights of the workers even being in UWP she will give it to them also. Remember the other who are allegedly in bed with SLP. WHY IS FUEL PRICE SO HIGH. St.Lucians more so SLP supporters wake up!!!!!!!!!!!. we are being taken on a ride by the SLP regime. Mary thank you for standing up for us the workers of our beautiful country. Keep up the good work. Bravo!!!!!!!!!

    (0)(0)
    • She has been a force to be reckoned with... hence the attack on her integrity by the Government.... however, in the fight for workers rights one should endeavour to be above board... perception kills the best of intentions!!!!

      We need to disassociate the organization from "partisan" acts....

      At the end of the day...time will tell the tale!!!!!

  31. Does that mean Montoute wil be contesting the seat as an IUWP(Independant UWP) this band seems to be growing. Fredricks,King,Montoute and the guy who lost the leadership contest to Chasnet.
    Is this the beginning of the 4th party?So far at least two of them can win their seats. Will the balance of power at the next election rest with the Independants? Certainly possible!
    Don't be surprised to see this new group grow, I have also heard of a few disaffected SLPs considering standing in key seats as Independant candidates.

    • There are many reasons why two party systems exist and continue to flourish....its just a simple model than any other and a natural occurrence, as far as human actions go. Either the UWP or the Slp will win this election. Simple as that.

  32. Some of these comment why St Lucians are so easily taken advantage of. This woman put her aspirations above the people she swear to represent. She is put in another position to represent people again and someone is thinking that woman will not steal and kill to get ahead . Well its the St Lucian way these they are raping 91 year old. Oh well this underhanded nonsense is in parts of society . When you accept there why do you cry when it happen somewhere else.. or we are not smart enough to realize . You values dictates what kind of community you are going live in.

  36. Mary does not need the UP to move on in life. She does not have to care what you all say about her being a souser. If Kenny is playing politics then she has a right to play it to. I trust what she says more than I trust some of the things Kenny says. like her i have turned my back. I am not blinded by the show off that goes on. I am interest Un what is said and how we live to our words. respect to you Mary. may not always agree with you but I admire how determined you are.

  41. This woman really shows her true colors.
    when you prayer about certain situations the Holy Spirit prompt you where certain people are leaning. This woman was never sincere with the CSA. I want to tell her that God is the one who Governs. He is a sovereign God. He gives us our intellect and every thing. He allow us to use as plan by Him but is the choice that we make that he watches. Whether is His Will or the Evil ones Will. History is repeating itself. This world is a pagan world. Everything is about self. We have to watch that. Are we going to serve the people of St. Lucia with charity (Love of God, Love One for another) or love of self.

  43. What a coup! What a ... coup! I believe that de fire brigade got to place a truck outside the senate whenever it is in session from now till election. See? See? A woman with the testicular fortitude that her male counterparts were not born with.

    SLP's business [Read: backside] is now exposed! The 5% cut charade may now unravel for all to see. Expect fewer senate meetings people, till the next elections.

    • The president of the senate must be sharpening his knives...look row row weee. Them labours in power and they still awarje'! The de'zole'.....All Trade union presidents before scary mary were SLP plants or sooceres....all of them, and all wanted to be involved in politics....they just were not talented enough or capable of running the mindfield that is involved in this game of power. They are underestimating chastanet, and the way not he, but the organization behind him functions. Lah gee jeet all day for all millibugs!

  52. So what? Monrose is a big SLP and he representing teachers. All his decisions are based on the interest of SLP. So why look down on her. She is trying to protect the workers just like Monrose.

    • well said padner well said

    • and to add to this for years now the past president of the CSA was and still is a stonge member of the SLP, why do you think he never bargained for better wages, and conditions of work for the civil servants. He always worked in tandem with the SLP so our pleas always rested on deaf ears.

      (0)(0)
    • That is where the problem lies, if they both looking out for their party, there is no objectivity then it is the workers and the country who are in peril, truly sad.

  54. Labour is failing and it's apparent to most forward thinking people. Not saying the world is better today than it was yesterday but what have they done to ease the blow on the poorer ppl in Lucia. They were promised better days but plenty are yet to see it. And for those STILL waiting I hope it comes. But I believe miss issac will do a good job whether in a winning party or opposition as long as she sticks to fighting for the rights of the ppl as she clearly did as CSA president #gomary!!!

  55. Should I be surprise. they all do it, swing to the side where the grass seems greener,I hope she goes to her CSA members who recently voted her as president and hear what they have to say before accepting the nomination.

    • Her agenda was to pervert that disrespectful and distastefull move by Kenny Anthony to force and impose a 5% wage cut on civil servants who are struggling he didint even make it an accross the board move for ministers and the Judiciary. The whole talk of productivity going around i think that the productivity council should target the judiciary how can persons be expected to be at court for 9 way before their case and the judges come walking in at 1 o'clock youre ass should be fired ontop of that they give some distastefull rullings especially to those that are being raped by unscrupulous lawyers and their evil clients. That young man on Rick Waynes show shows the trend of thought many young people have the politicians and the Judiciary should be taking note if things continue as they do we might well end up seeing a revoulition in the counrty and it does not look preety for those in authority
