Minister for Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation, Guy Joseph, has said the main opposition St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP) should keep investors out of their problems with the government.
The Castries South East Member of Parliament made the comment in an interview with reporters as the ruling United Workers Party (UWP) held what it called a “thanksgiving” church service today, June 6, 2017 to commemorate the party’s first 12 months in office.
Joseph accuses the SLP of trying to create unrest and destabilise the government. He said once the SLP is in opposition this is expected.
“I must say that they continue to exhibit the traits of character associated with the Labour Party: instability, threats to people and all kinds of things,” Joseph said.
“I mean this is our country and we should not take kindly to any former government or government minister threatening investors. The Labour Party is so well known for this,” he added.
Joseph accused the SLP of making up allegations about investors.
“If the opposition has a problem with the government, deal with the government. Do not bring in the investors and the people into this… Investors do not bring themselves into a country and give themselves anything, so if there is a problem deal with the government,” Joseph stated.
