(SNO) — The Lucian People’s Movement has announced that it will be merging with the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).

In a post on social media, the party commended its leader, Therold Prudent, for the move in which the LPM will be dissolved and its members joining the main opposition SLP.

“The Lucian People’s Movement (LPM) stands united and completely supportive of our leader’s decision to join the St Lucia Labour Party (SLP),” the post said. “We offer our continued support to Mr Therold Prudent, and wish him well on this new journey for our country.”

Prudent said the move was designed to put country above all else, since the country is being poorly governed by the present United Workers Party government, adding that the LPM had a big voice in the politics of Saint Lucia.

Both parties have seen eye to eye on many issues in Saint Lucia.

The LPM has constantly lamented the state of healthcare on the island and has backed the SLP on the controversial multi-billion-dollar Desert Star Holdings (DSH) investment project issue.

However, it had disagreed with a Citizenship by Investment Programme being pushed by the SLP when that party was in power, saying it would saying it would revisit the programme if it forms the next government.

At the last general elections, on June 6, 2016, the party received 154 votes nationwide.

  1. You all have it all wrong. Honesty is the best policy.

    SLP had long ago swallowed the one-man LPM party with no followers, years ago. You were so obvious! You are embarrassing yourselves.

    Next thing is this. The two-party system is being reinforced here once again. Yardfowls are at it once again. We give support for other peoples' jobs and government contracts.

    Hand-to-mouth followers have no tolerance for truth and national strategy. Their main concerns are their immediate needs and the basics of food, clothing and housing.

    RIP LPM. No lasting impact.

    You guys never had a convincing plan. You never had any bargaining chips. You bring nothing to the SLP table, not even a convincing candidate. There is no Poog, Therefore, all of this is just fake news, the specialty of our social media houses, the home of very lazy low-information-processing thinkers.
