Member of Parliament (MP) for Castries South and Minister of Education and Labour Dr. Robert Lewis was recently questioned by the local media about his political future.
The minister said when he entered politics in 2006 he was questioned about the reason for entering. He said the main objective was to give his service to the field.
Dr. Lewis recalled telling a former student that he would serve at least two terms and then begin to reevaluate.
Questioned as to whether he has made a decision yet, Dr. Lewis said,“When the time is right you will get to know.”
Before entering politics, Dr. Lewis was supervisor and examiner of National Examinations in Mathematics from 1992 to 2006.
In January 2005 he received a Phd in mathematics from the University of Otago.
