(St. Lucia News Online) — Saint Lucia’s Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has described Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, the prime minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as the “5 Star General”.
That’s because Dr. Gonsalves, last Thursday, won his country’s general elections for the fifth straight time.
His Unity Labour Party (ULP) won nine of the 15 electoral seats, creating history in the Caribbean.
“Congratulations to Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves aka the 5 Star General on his 5th General Election victory in St Vincent & the Grenadines,” Chastanet wrote on his official Facebook page.
Gonsalves increased his party’s dominance to three more seats compared to his one-seat majority achieved in the past two general elections.
