(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.
