PRESS RELEASE –
An independent poll conducted by CDMS (Trinidad) Limited has found the following results with respect to the upcoming convention of the United Workers Party as it relates to the leadership of the party.

Wendell Thomas the Managing Director of CDMS can be contacted to confirm the technical details of methodology and conduct of the poll.

1) Amongst undecided voters who are following the UWP contest for leadership with keen interest, Dr. Claudius Preville is favoured by a 2:1 margin over Mr. Allen Chastanet on the following issues which the poll asked respondents about: a) Who is best to lead Saint Lucia at this time b) Make the best Prime Minister

2) Allen Chastanet’s negatives are relatively high in comparison to those of Dr. Claudius Preville. Amongst the aforementioned voters when asked the question: would you vote for the UWP if Dr. Claudius Preville or Mr. Allen Chastanet is Leader? Dr. Claudius Preville was preferred as the Political leader of the UWP by approximately 14% more respondents over Mr. Allen Chastanet. This indicates that there is a higher negative sentiment towards Mr. Chastanet when compared to Dr. Claudius Preville. In addition, these voters place a higher level of trust in Dr Claudius Preville to revitalize the economy when compared to Allen Chastanet.

3) While UWP Supporters were prepared to support either Dr Claudius Preville or Mr Allen Chastanet as political leader, disaffected SLP supporters were by a statistically significant margin of 10% more likely to support Dr. Claudius Preville, again revealing that Mr. Chastanet’s negatives amongst voters are very high compared to Dr Claudius Preville.

The poll therefore shows in this case that Dr. Claudius Preville has a greater chance of winning in an upcoming election since he is able to attract a wider constituency of voters.

  2. so because you are an economist that gives you all the knowledge, expertise and experience to lead my country and take us out of this mess? if it were so simple then the world would be perfect with the million and one economist that exist. all we had to do was consult an economist (oh yea, both parties been doing that since there were green fig trees growing in castries). i only saw preville once and he seems arrogant and self centered. i read up on him and his position and he is full of what comes out of the opposite side where horses eat. he is just coming forth as an opportunist to eat my tax money... dr. preville? phd stands for preville has dreams (phd) i cuda never vote for preville, i rather vote for my grandfather... and he's dead!! chastenent, you self...

  3. I don't give two F's about the petty politics and self-centered politicians we have down here but something just doesn't seem right with this "independent poll", especially the timing of it. What was the sample size for the poll? Coincidentally our director of statistics happens to be buddies with the managing director of CDMS Limited (anyone remember the 4.4% GDP broo-ha-ha in 2011?). All these politicians are the same, however the very limited amount of data I'm seeing here makes no sense to me at all and appears to be just another political ploy cooked up by a few disgruntled politicians with money to spare....just saying!

  4. I AM WATCHING ALL THE SO CALL PHD GRADUATES AND THEIR TRACK RECORD IS WEAK SO FAR !!

    We have Kenny who has a doctorate in Constitutional law (has never amended one law in the constitution ever!)

    There is an economist in his administration who also has a PHD. He can't seem to figure out how to fix the economy either.

    Then there is Preville who also has a doctorate in Economics. To early to tell if he can deliver but his speech about Agriculture and Tourism suggest he is nothing different.

    Then there is Chastanet who also has a degree in Economics. Can't deliver either and made enormous mistakes with the Tourism Industry when he was in charge.

    TWO THINGS IF YOU CAN'T DELIVER OR YOUR TRACK RECORD IS WEAK, DON'T TALK ABOUT YOUR QUALIFICATIONS.

    IF YOU A DOCTOR AND YOU CAN'T FIX SHIT, I DON'T RESPECT YOU.

    Therefore, all this election BS means nothing cause you guy are worthless boys old liers !!

  5. Someone told me that because Chastnet has money he is powerful. Plus his colour will open doors for us. I just shook my head. Some of us black people must really travel and be among the white folks so we can really experience racism. The white people don't like our colour and we will always be inferior to them. Allan Chastenet is not going to look out for the needs of the poor. So be careful what you wish for.

  8. Racism will never stop if we dont want Chastanet and illiteracy in SLU will never end.
    Preville! What can he do? Smh I'm so ashame to be from SLU, some of my people disgust me. I wish you'll well but labour will win again.

  10. Observation: Why is preville surrounded by so many labas? Nelsons: Labas, Catherine Sealys: Laba, etc. Now, this injunction is very interesting. Looks like the preville camp is press for time so the players behind his campaign (the likes of Richard Fredrick, Mark Louis, Bruce Tucker, and Stephenson King) decided to have this calculated move of the injunction. In a nutshell, this preville matter has richard fredrick all over it as the mastermind and financier UNITED LABOUR PARTY HERE THEY COME
