The allegation that the United Workers Party (UWP) held discussions with a delegation from the Civil Service Association (CSA) about a memorandum of understanding which would see the UWP providing the executive of the CSA with diplomatic passports when elected into government, has been labelled as ludicrous by party leader Allen Chastanet.

This week, the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), in a press release, had challenged the party to come clean about the matter.

Speaking in an interview with Saint Lucia News Online (SNO) on Thursday, June 26, Chastanet rubbished the claim, stating that it was not “deserving of an answer”.

He in addition, challenged the SLP to produce the evidence of the MOU.

“First of all, the question doesn’t even deserve an answer. I mean, it’s so ludicrous, and if in fact the Labour Party has any evidence of an MOU, produce it and stop threatening,” he said to SNO.

The party leader said he has no intention of taking legal action against the SLP for that allegation.

“The United Workers Party does not operate in the same manner as the Labour Party. We believe in democracy…. We’re looking to gaining the trust of the people, and if people have any questions about any of policies or any actions that we may or may not have taken, they are free to ask us and it is our responsibility to answer them. But it’s a ludicrous statement and instead of focusing on fixing up the economy and giving people reprieve and hope, the Labour Party is continuously looking to blame other people for the mess that we are in,” Chastanet said.
