Two individuals were on Friday named candidates of the United Workers Party (UWP), bringing the party’s list of candidates to 17.
Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony on Thursday evening announced June 6, 2016 as the official date for the next general election on Saint Lucia.
The UWP has for the past several weeks been promising to announce the two remaining candidates, but now that the election date has been set, they’ve decided to release the names.
The candidates are: Jimmy Henry (Dennery North) and Prince Ambrose (Vieux Fort North).
Party executive, Nancy Charles, said that these and other candidates will be launched over the next few weeks remaining, before election.
Charles said the party is fully prepared to contest the election, and noted that the recently announced candidates have already met with the people of the constituency they wish to represent.
