Although it might be an uphill challenge if three persons contest the Castries Central seat, the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) candidate, Stanley Felix has nevertheless expressed confidence in securing a win.
Felix told the media on Tuesday that his chances are much better when put against the opposition candidate and former Castries Central Member of Parliament (MP) Sarah Flood- Beaubrun.
“I am dealing with a person who has been absent for 10 or more years. A person who has basically left the constituency and disappeared. A person who has not done anything for the constituency for quite a long time. And I have been the person championing the causes for the people of Castries Central,” he said.
Questioned on his thoughts about incumbent MP for Castries Central, Richard Frederick running as an independent, Felix said it is his democratic right to run if he chooses to, but he (Felix) has been working with the people of the constituency and he will have their support.
“I am the face they have been seeing. I’m the face I want them to see in the future. So, I go to them for the support and I am sure they will give me their support. I am very confident of a win because of what I have done in the constituency over the last four and a half years, which none of the other candidates can boast of,” he asserted.
Felix said he is now more experienced and have taken and invested time to understand the issue facing constituents. And based on his track record, there is no doubt in his mind that he will win the seat.
