Motion filed in High Court to have Richard Frederick reinstated

Richard Fredrick.

A motion has been filed with the High Court to have Castries Central MP Richard Frederick reinstated as a member of the United Workers Party (UWP).

Reports are that the motion was filed on October 24 by plaintiff Mark Louis. The motion also seeks to block the move to endorse a new candidate for Frederick’s current seat.

The plaintiff’s argument is that proper disciplinary procedures were not followed in Frederick’s case which led to his expulsion. The document has since been served on UWP leader Allen Chastenet and General Secretary Oswald Augustin.

All parties are to appear in court this morning, where the case is expected to convene. This may prevent the UWP from conducting its annual National Convention, which is due to take place on Sunday.

The UWP National Council had voted to expel Frederick on Sunday, August 17. Frederick has claimed that his expulsion was triggered as a result of dictatorship in the party.

The UWP Convention will decide on a new leader for the UWP. Incumbent leader Allen Chastenet and Dr. Claudius Preville will be battling for the top post.

  1. This is Richard constitutional right to do so. The UWP like talking about democratic rights if they really believe so then the public vote in a bi elections TChas and his clowns would lose.

  10. I am now contemplating a new "Revolutionary" party to work on the behess of everyone in this Nation.

    This party will be one to PROTECT the Vulnerable in the society.
    And i am speaking about the Children, the Elderly and our WOMEN.

    I am prepared to put a team together for 2021 General Elections Held in this Nation of ours.

    If you are with me, support my comment.

  20. In my honest opinion, if anyone is in power and was not voted in by citzens of this nation in an election, he should have no say. Allen chastenet was never elected, he was selected, just like united states president. To me this rubbish, let the polls do the talking.

    • Thanks but no thanks. Joining Labour as far as I am concerned is like adding more stress to my life. I am too young for this same ole same ole politics. LPM is likely my choice of party.The other choice is staying home.

      • Mama you rather vote Prudent a man who is so deluded in thinking he can stay in his Brooklyn base and be a MP? In that case I would advise you stay at home!

        (0)(0)
        • That's none of your business if I decide to vote for Mr. Prudent and his party. By the way don't tell me about delusion because there are a lot of deluded persons in my party and in the SLP. I rather vote for a man who is intelligent and sure of himself than for fools who are power hungry and have no new ideas.

  27. I don't get it. I though Claudius Preville was winning the Leadership battle? All this does is to say that those supporting him don't have the confidence the he will win since they're trying to postpone the convention to give him more time to campaign. Does it also mean that a Preville leadership will bring back Richard Frederick. Awa for them fellas e.
