Incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Castries South Dr. Robert Lewis has hinted that United Workers Party (UWP) candidate Mary Isaac will not secure a win at the polls.

Dr. Lewis told the local media on Friday (Jan.29) that the UWP candidate will “feel the full pleasure and displeasure” of majority of the people of Castries South, just before and after the next elections.

“There was another person who said he could ‘get it done’ and everybody in Saint Lucia knows what was done and she will feel the full pleasure of the people,” he asserted.

The Education Minister, who recently announced that he is bowing out of elective politics, maintains that it was his personal decision and he was not forced in any way to quit.

Questioned by the media about speculations that he sold his seat, Dr. Lewis said, “There is a lot of stupidity in Saint Lucia that you ought not to answer to.”

He continued, “When I came into politics it’s because people came to my house to ask me to represent them. I have to make my own decision as to when I leave politics.”

Asked about his performance in office as Castries South MP, Dr. Lewis said, “I don’t want to answer to critics. The UWP, whoever their supporters are, could say whatever they want.”

There is speculation that Chairman of the Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) Ernest Hilaire, could replace Dr. Lewis to contest the seat at the next general elections.

  1. This man and his words are so passe! Who cares whatever he thinks about the opposition candidates? For all the supposed erudition and scholarship, he has left no positive significant mark as a tenured education minister. And this except all these SLP 'better days' goes for any remarkable on national development impact by the entire SLP, especially its masquerading clown act, called a cabinet. The characteristic silliness that pours forth from the Castries market steps gives more than abundant testimony and proof.

  7. “There is a lot of stupidity in Saint Lucia that you ought not to answer to.”
    Comments like this shows you disdain for votes. That's why you would lose. And you never fixed a road. Nice Hall

  8. Robert, you know Kenny no longer want you in his camp. You have the Education ministry in a mess. Kenny wanted you out, but you are not the only one. There are others Kenny would like to kick out, and they know themselves, look at how he treated Pep, he will have to go back and sing calypso to make ends meet, he kick you out also, so who is next? With labor once your novelty gone Kenny quick to move on, to a next new bright star. Thomas Walcott was also kicked out and I expect Ernest Hilaire and some others to be dumped also, he use you and kick you so go home and lick your wounds, and stop attacking Mary

  9. Mary Isaac may not be the ideal candidate but neither is Ernesto Destructo. Now in this hilarious hurricane season we cant afford to have our homes blown away by any ill wind that have thrown down
    even robert lewis himself.

  10. Castries South has always been Labour!!! Mary have no family root to the area... The SLP candidate was borne and grew in the area, plus family in the LA Croix Main got area.

    • Pure political dinosaur crap. How much any darn 'born here' candidate then later an MP, can get done for your constituency depends on the Minister of Finance of the day. If he or she says 'yes' or 'no' so it goes.

      Our PMs are just manipulators. They decide.

      They are in the driver's seat always. Yes, this is gaining the majority in parliament and after your yarifowl vote for their puppets, their goons and their STOOGES. Soufriere comes to mind.

  11. HI ROBERT LEWIS, I MUST ADMIT THAT YOU ARE A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT AND ATTACKING MARY ISSAC ON YOU WAY OUT IS CAUSING EVEN MORE REPROACH TO FALL ON YOU.

    YOU ARE SO SPINELESS THAT MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE YOU WERE FORCED OUT.

    SPEAK OUT AGAINST CORRUPTION EVEN WHEN IT IS YOUR PARTY YOU MUST CALL OUT.

    ARE YOU GETTING AN EXTRA BONUS FOR ATTACKING MARY?

    WHAT ABOUT JUFFALI DID YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HIS APPOINTMENT?

    WHY ARE YOU MUTE ON THIS TOPIC?

    YOU ARE A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!

    THE SCHOOLS AND THE WHOLE EDUCATION SECTOR IN SAINT LUCIA ARE A MESS.

    SPEAK ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN STILL TRY AFTER NEARLY FIVE YEARS OF FAILURE AND LEAVE MARY ISSAC ALONE.

    FOR SURE SHE WILL DEAL WITH YOU.

    SHE WAS KIND IN HER STATEMENT ABOUT YOUR DEPARTURE BUT NOW LET HER TAKE YOU ON. YOU ARE SPINELESS SO FOR SURE SHE IS MORE OUTSPOKEN THAN YOU.

  12. oh please lewis, they make you go because you were a weak link, to make room for someone else, oh pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  13. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. Mercifully no one has any obligation to pay nay attention to it.

    Sheer sentiment is not fundamentally logical. But our legions of the country country bucks in this country do not yet have the capacity, nor the maturity to know any of that. Nor, do they have the wisdom know the difference.

  14. Mr. Lewis predecessor Mr John Odlum, was allegedly unceremoniously asked to vacate the seat for Mr. Lewis. He cried like a baby. If he is honest he will tell the truth. I am one who believe he was also allegedly compensated to vacate.

  15. Yes there is a lot of stupidity going around in St.Lucia including his utterances about Mary Isaac not securing a win at the next poll.
    One thing I know for sure that had he run that seat at the upcoming general election, Mary would have torn into him.
    His exit was timely and calculated.

  16. Mr. Robert Clueliss your party is the one gonna feel the displeasure.....and as for Ms.Mary Drysack...I dunno about any pleasurable feelings there....
