PRESS RELEASE – The Saint Lucia Labour Party wishes to condemn the behavior of UWP Political Leader Allen Chastanet, who on Monday night repeatedly swore at Labour Party supporters at Faux a Chaux.
Following his address at a public meeting organized by UWP Castries South East candidate, Mary Isaac, Chastanet approached a group of young people and enquired of them why they were supporting the SLP and Ernest Hilaire when the Labour had done nothing for the community. Not receiving the response he expected, Chastanet proceeded to hurl obscenities at the group before departing.
This is unacceptable behaviour from someone seeking to be Prime Minister of the country.
The SLP calls on Mr. Chastanet to not only apologize to the residents of Faux a Chaux but in addition, desist from a repeat of such behaviour.
