The Soufriere Constituency Group of the St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has said it is displeased with behavior allegedly displayed by United Workers Party (UWP) leader Allen Chastanet and his supporters at a ceremony to mark the official opening of the Soufriere Bridge on Friday.

According to the group, in a press release, Chastanet and his supporters surrounded the function bearing placards in apparent disapproval of the ceremony – an action the group believes was a “clearly demonstrated attempt to disrupt and sabotage a legitimate government function.”

“Chastanet pretends not to know much of what was happening on the Friday. This is yet another attempt by Mr. Chastanet to mislead the public. This was a well-publicized event and the whole of Soufriere knew. He is in Soufriere regularly and could not have been unaware of the event. The placards carried by his supporters were a clear indication that they came with a plan to cause disturbance,” the press release stated.

“The Constituency Group considers Chastanet’s behaviour to be well below the standard expected of a person desirous of representing Soufriere or for that matter, assuming the position of prime minister of the country,” the group said.

The group further rubbished suggestions that the individual chosen to declare the bridge open had no right to do so.

“We note that it is normal practice that even if a project was started by a previous government, it is incumbent on the government of the day to officially declare open the facility. So, for Allen Chastanet to declare that Mr. Dalson has no right to officially declare the bridge open is outright stupid, ridiculous and nonsensical,” the group said.

“In case the nation does not know, Mr. Chastanet and his cronies have always pledged to demonstrate and disrupt the proceedings whenever the bridge was to be declared open,” the group said.

The group further opined that Chastanet’s alleged behaviour was “consistent with his attempts to mislead the OECS Court of Appeal leading to the court’s ruling which basically states that he is incompatible with the truth.”

“It is also now well known that Allen Chastanet claimed that friends of Soufriere paid for his Third World Launch, when we have evidence that the cheque was paid by the Soufriere Town Council,” the group said in the release.
.
Adding further that, “The constituency council of Soufriere applauds Dalson who is now in the process of building four bridges; two have already been completed for the people of Soufriere – an achievement no other representative has ever accomplished in Soufriere.”

  1. What does that have to do with tape, His behavior was not good, He thought by breaking the bridge before the election would have given him political mileage, but the people of Soufriere wasn't stupid. If Castries south didn't want him, gros islet rejected him, why Soufriere Sounds like a desperate man or is it because he has an agenda to continue bleeding the resources left in the bread basket of beautiful fair Helen Can someone tell me

  3. St lucians must wake up & accept the truth know matter your party colour. Firstly mr CHASTENET as leader of the uwp & a man looking to become leader of this country had no wright to come to d opening of the bridge wit his IDIOT's an disturb the ceremoney, The man is not the MP, He's not the rep, He's not a Parliamentarian so what was motive for being there? The bridge got damaged during hurricane tomas For GOD sake the party in office have to start the rehabilitation works so new goverment come's in they have to finish the project ESP if the plan is wright, The gentle man was just a minister in that goverment it wasn't his monies that he used to build the bridge, HON DALSON was the distric rep then his goverment came to power & finish the project so pls tell me what favour did MR ALLEN give to the people of soufriere? IS the tax payers money eh you owe the service to the people. THey rejected you at the polls u still want to be recognize for a bridge u r goverment started honestly i dont see any merit in ALLEN N his people's action's. St lucian pls put colour aside N give credit when its due not d oother way round.

  7. The SLP said it is displeased with the behavior allegedly displayed by Chastenet.
    The meaning of the word "ALLEGED" is declared but without proof.
    Is the SLP saying that the its members and supporters did not see what transpired and they were told so by other persons?
    Is the SLP saying that they have no proof that Chastenet sabotaged and disrupted the event?
    Use of the word ALLEGEDLY suggest that they have no proof he sabotaged the event,therefore (1)why are they displaying anger and disapprovial(2)Why put out the press release?
    This press release is pure HOG-WASH.
    It would seem that the SLP went into panic mode as soon as they realised that Chastenet would become the UWP leader.Since then their actions have been sloppy,amateurish,ridiculous,hateful,divisive and unprofessional.
    Try to re-group and get some useful consultants.

    • Saint Lucians are not familiar with word play, like u said "Alleged" doesnt mean someone committed the act its merely a claim without proof, smh when will our nation open its eyes and realize this whole politics thing is just a game and all politicians are on the same team

  8. Why should Dalson have been there, was he given money to build the bridges, i thought there was a ministry for that, communications and works and infrastructure.

  9. If the SLP believes Chastenet sabotaged and disrupted the ceremony then release the tape so that all st.lucians can see what happened then draw their conclusions.
    We have heard that Dalson used foul language while talking to chastenet.Please confirm whether he did or did not.
    Did Chastenet walk over to where Dalson was standing and engage him in a conversation?
    Did Dalson walk over to where Chastenet was standing and engage him in a conversation?
    The answers to these questions will give us a clearer picture of what happened.
