Former government minister Sarah Flood-Beaubrun has expressed confidence of securing the leadership position of the United Workers Party (UWP) at the next party convention.
Flood-Beaubrun, who was nominated by the Gros Islet and Castries North constituency branches, also foresees a huge election win for the party with her at the helm.
But the former minister acknowledged that the decision will have to be made by party members and delegates, at the next UWP convention on November 15, 2015.
Flood-Beaubrun said she is seeking the leadership post of the UWP, because she is confident she can get the job done, despite it might take some hard work.
The Attorney-at-Law also expressed confidence in helping to unite the party, stating that she has the experience to lead Saint Lucia and restore confidence in the people.
“I think I am really ready for this job and I can do an excellent job. I think I am the person to do this at the moment. That’s why I have thrown my hat in the ring,” she stated.
Flood-Beaubrun is a former United Nations representative under the last UWP Administration. She served previously as a Minister of Health, Human Services, Family Affairs and Gender Relations and Minister of Home Affairs. She was also MP for Castries Central and was the first female Speaker of the House.
