Former Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) Minister Sarah Flood-Beaubrun is set to play a major role in the United Workers Party (UWP) election campaign.
Flood-Beaubrun who contested for leadership at the last UWP Conference of Delegates, conceded defeat, but pledged her support to working with the new executive.
Party Chairman, Guy Mayers, told this publication on Thursday that a meeting was held between himself, political leader Allen Chastanet and Flood-Beaubrun last year.
Mayers said coming out of those discussions, both parties agreed that she will play an active role from henceforth and would assist during the election campaign season.
“She is committed to working with the party whenever general elections are called,” he remarked.
While Flood-Beaubrun is not seeking to be a UWP candidate, Mayers said, the former minister plans to assist with formulation of policies and doing public speaking as the campaign warms up.
She had underscored the need for the UWP to revive it’s women’s arm and attract the youth votes.
Flood-Beaubrun is a former Health Minister and Speaker of the House of Assembly.
She is an attorney by profession and has been a member of the UWP since 2006.
