Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) supporters were recently told at a political rally that Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) Allen Chastanet wants to deceive Saint Lucians.
SLP Leader, Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony recalls Chastanet telling Saint Lucians that if he is elected to office, Saint Lucians will not be required a visa to travel to the United States (US).
“Who is Allen Chastanet for the US to waive visas for Saint Lucians? But he is there to deceive you,” he declared.
Dr. Anthony used the SLP platform to attack his opponent at the next election stating that Chastanet is not prepared for governance and the promises he has made should be taken with a pinch of salt.
He said Chastanet is most afraid of the SLP’s communications manager, Jadia Jn Pierre- Emmanuel.
“And this young lady, if Chastanet could avoid taking a call from her, he would avoid it why? Because he was able to lie to the public that he even forgot himself,” the SLP leader asserted.
The Prime Minister was referring to Chastanet’s comments about oil prices during a radio interview, where he flip flopped on the prices when questioned in detail.
Referring to the UWP leader and its candidates as “Allen Chastanet and his gang”, the prime minister said the opposition team has failed each time to attract a dynamic crowd like the SLP.
“Whatever activity they hold, somehow they cannot get the crowd or capture the imagination of their own supporters. What has Allen Chastanet done?”
He continued: “Every time the SLP has a function, he deliberately has a function. He is a follower.”
The SLP attracted a massive crowd at their recent political rally held on the La Clery Playing field, to launch the party’s Castries North candidate, John Charlery.
