The Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) will hold a town hall meeting at the Ciceron Secondary School to discuss the economy and other matters of concern to residents from the area tomorrow, July 15 at 6:30p.m.

A press release from the party states that Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Dr. Kenny Anthony, Minister for Infrastructure Phillip J. Pierre and Parliamentary Representative for the area Dr. Robert Lewis will lead these deliberations.

According to the release, officials from the Ministry of Finance are expected to make a presentation on the fiscal challenges faced by the government “and the measures the government seeks to employ in reducing the deficit, for the knowledge and scrutiny of constituents.”

Several other cabinet ministers are expected to be present and will address the proceedings based on their respective ministries.

Residents have been urged to attend and to contribute to the discussion.

Tuesday’s meeting follows a series of discussions held in other constituencies on the island, the release said.

  1. Doesn't anybody find it strange that someone can only balance their budget on paper but when it comes to real life its just theoretical, he just can't do it?

    Isn't it even stranger that this person is our MIinster of FInance (dealing with our hard earned money)? Now telling us that we have to pay more takes and take a pay cut and don't take a raise for the next 3 years. While he just there empolying friends and familiy and loyal supporters. Do Whats Right and take a stand against despotism.

    • Plantation field hand types only know about barking orders to economic slaves, NOT FREED MEN AND WOMEN, like in THE COMMUNIST COUNTRIES: Putin's Russia, North Korea, and with the Castro bothers' Raul and Fidel in CUBA.

      We have curtailment of freedom of the press by Kenny already. He legislated the GOVERNMENT CONFISCATION OF 5% OF THE WORKERS PROPERTY.

      THIS REEKS OF COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP.

      What is going to be under attack by the SLP, NEXT?

  2. I hope one of the question that will be asked is why does the minister who gets a travelling allowance have an SLG vehicle coming to meet him at his home every morning and bring him back in the evenings. One of the ways where we can save alot in the public service is by using SLG vehicles only for SLG business

  3. Why isn't the fiscal challenges of ordinary people being discussed. The Government already collect 25% of GDP in taxes. They are right to go an discuss it with their loyal supporters cause any right thinking person would give them some banchay.

    What there should be is a no vote of confidence in those people in future dealing with our money. As we cannot trust them with the little that we have left. Do Whats Right your budget failed so step down.

    • In mature democracies, parliament would be CONVENED TO DISCUSS THIS BUDGETARY CRISIS, with A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE TABLED.

      FAILURE TO WIN THAT VOTE WOULD MEAN A RETURN TO THE POLLS.

      Hey! Instead, we have a communist dictatorship growing minute by minute. Even the CARICOM Heads of Government, in their last meeting, DISTANCED THEMSELVES FROM IT.

      POWER-HUNGRY, Kenny is feeling his way with those so-called Town Hall meetings, to create a situation ripe for calling a state of emergency, so as prolong his stay and remain in power.

  5. The people must be made aware of the situation as is, regardless of how we got there, because when the shit hit the fan, no one can say he/she was not warned. This is serious shit.

    • People must be made aware of who catapulted this country into this abyss. And it is Kenny, once. It is Kenny twice. It is Kenny three times. No holes barred, jackass government has been let loose on the unsuspecting people.

  8. Is it correct that the SLP is the one promoting such a meeting? Why is the SLP promoting a meeting presented by government. Should or shouldn't a UWP supporter attend that meeting? Yes it is being presenter by the Office of the Ministry of Finance not by an MP.

  10. At my age, never thought the day would come when I will vote my party; THE ST LUCIA LABOUR PARTY, but abstain.

    Kenny, you are sleeping at the wheels, while the country burns. The audacity of those thugs to challenge you; using all the gangsta terms in one of their op-ed; yet, you and LaCob; quite useless; remains mute.
