Former Agriculture Minister Ezechiel Joseph will be contesting the Babonneau seat at the next general elections, with hope of returning as the parliamentary representative.

Joseph said that members of the United Workers Party (UWP) Babonneau branch spoke with him and suggested that he consider running again to represent the constituency on behalf of the UWP.

“They said they were satisfied with my performance and when they compare what is happening now to what I did, they recognised that I did a good job,” he told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) on Tuesday.

The former senator said based on those requests, he decided to run again.

Joseph told SNO that people are still questioning how he lost the seat to current Minister of Health and Member of Parliament (MP) for Babonneau Alvina Reynolds by a mere two votes.

Nevertheless, he said he is confident of being re-elected as the MP for the constituency at the next general elections because he has the support of the people and he can get the job done.

The former MP pointed out that people in the constituency are already not pleased with what is taking place at the community and national level, and have expressed their disappointment in this regard.

He told SNO that there are a number of issues to be addressed in Babonneau, which he hopes to fix. In addition to that, the former minister said that there is a lot more to be done in the agriculture sector.

Joseph lost the Babonneau seat at the general election held on November, 28, 2011. He was sworn in as an opposition member of the Senate on January, 5, 2012, and resigned in December 2015.

He was also the former chairman of the UWP.

  1. Alvina never won!! For those who don't know that Mr. Joseph worked hard in babooneau especially balata. There is NO WAY SLP can win there. All what he did and started Alvina can't come near. He tried his best and we will definitely give him a 2nd chance. She removed the bus shelter right now school children as well as other residents are getting WET!! The school children have to go to all other locations for sports. He started the field and she doesn't wasn't to finish it. SLP will NEVER win in BABONNEAU and this time we will have fair election. Kekel u hv my vote. Ezecoco must win. We taking it this time

  5. Anyone questioning the amount of work this man has achieved is clearly not from Babonneau, not only that his initiatives have been able to full a Calender, but word on the ground across the board is that Ezechiel has of worked and has a proven track record. And most who will strip of this merit is clearly a Labour hack or something of that sort...Give Jack his Jacket Ezechiel is a worker and I will attract new and retain old voters because of that.

  6. The last person who fixed the rough road by the balata laundry was Mr. Ezekel. That road is very bad and nobody seem to care. Me and my family will be giving you our fullest support just so that the road can be fixed again.

  7. It always baffles me how these guys loose an election and cannot find an alternative means of employment, salivating at getting another chance to get at the public purse. You have 5 years, achieved very little although you guys had money flowing from the Taiwanese briefcase. With regards to agriculture, you could not even take care of sigatoka. These politicians think the populace are forgetful. Well newsflash Mr Joseph, you lost and come next election, you will loose again. Mark my words.
