Not being a member of ‘Team Chastanet’ led to my removal – King believes

Stephenson King *m.jamaicaobserver.com

Former opposition leader Stephenson King continues to clear himself of accusations levelled against him by the hierarchy of the United Workers Party (UWP).

The UWP management claimed King frequently absented himself from its executive meetings. King said the party had conveniently used this allegation, as well as a meeting he attended with the prime minister following the Christmas Eve trough, as reasons to convene a special meeting of the party’s National Council to dismiss him as opposition leader.

During a questionand answer session at a Chase Gardens constituency meeting, King said since he was not part of “Team Chastanet” he is not surprised at how political developments in the party have unfolded since the last UWP convention.

“If Mr. Chastanet went as far as forming and campaigning with his team of members then it stands to reason that party members outside of Mr. Chastanet’s team would not have been welcomed after the convention,“  he remarked.

  4. justice delayed is justice denied

    It is amazing that lucians r so outraged at chastnet when they themselves kept saying that "king is a nice guy but is lacking as a leader". Now that something was done about it everybody calling fowl. Those in opposition who are mad are mad because their puppet is gone. Some of u lucians just damn racist becuz the first word out of most of your'll mouths is about the colour of chastnets skin. The same SLP who condemn king as being weak r now his biggest champions. Wake up st lucia!! Lets c what they can do b4 we start the name caling n insults

  5. These guys are worst than Brutus in. Julius Ceasar. Mr king just like Tillman thomas under estimated the influence of his former colleagues so to are they underestimating you. Now the real story is ...Gail Rigobert Chastenant must be shaking in his boots now that he has released the Cracken.

  8. King you are better off outside the UWP than inside. Pack your bags and look towards the horizon for the next train. Leave Chastanet and his dirty group of trickstirs to their own designs until they meet their match at the polls.
    Stand on your own and prove to all the world you are a real man!

  11. Team Chastanet is going nowhere. It takes a team effort to win most things and if you sideline your teammates you guarantee to fail.It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Without team members Frederick and King,the prize cant be won whether they like it or not. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

  12. king is very upset over the fact that he is no longer the UWP leader or opposition leader in the house.
    I have no doubt in my mind that he would like to regain both positions.My question is,does he expect to regain these positions by continuing to thrash the present leader and the persons who supported him in public?
    The very persons he is blaming for supporting Chastenet and Dr. Rigobert are the same ones he will need support from in order regain the positions he lost.
    Given all he has said and perhaps will continue to say,do he intend to sit with these same people and work as a team?
    I think that king has reached the point of no return and therefore should do the honorable thing which is to leave the party.
    I hope he knows that you cannot be divorced from the party and still remain as the party,s branch representative in the constituency.It will be very interesting to see how he interacts with the persons who voted against him during the up-coming party anniversary celebrations.

  13. Oh, boy, it's very sad that my friend King makes this statement. I had so much confidence in him but now he has really disappointed me. Why, oh why, did my good friend have to portray himself as a power hungry, selfish and destructive individual? History will not be kind to him because he seeks to destroy the very organization that made him nationally prominent and which was handed to him on a silver platter to manage?

  15. King, i do admire your position of not allowing yourself to "Slave" to any who isn't like you.

    Kudos man. Wish many had the backbone like you:)

  16. You are finally admitting that you were never a member of team Chastanet. It is obvious that you never accepted Chastanet when he was democratically elected by the UWP Executive, as you believed that you were the HEAD AND SOUL of the party. Well Mr King you were saddely mistaken. Go join the SLP if you believe that the grass is greener on the other side. Good riddance.

      • Chastnet is white!
        Put the rest of the puzzle together.

        I would rather vote for someone who looks like me and understands our culture. Not someone European who happen to be born in St.Lucia, who is so far removed from our culture.

        No European Nation would elect anyone into office who isn't like the majority or understands the culture.

        But i will respect your right to slave away to Chastnet.
