Executive Director of the Saint Lucia Social Development Fund (SSDF) Joachim Henry is the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party’s candidate for Castries South East in the next general election.
This was announced by Prime Minister and Leader of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), Dr. Kenny Anthony, at the party’s Annual Conference of Delegates in Vieux Fort on Sunday.
Henry will seek to unseat incumbent Guy Joseph whom Dr. Anthony declared on Sunday, had won in the last general elections by fewer votes than spoiled ballots.
“The days of Guy Joseph are numbered. His days are coming to an end and this Labour Party will spare no effort to remove him from office,” the SLP leader said.
Henry will take leave from the SSDF this week to officially kick off his campaign and will leave the agency for good once his leave has ended, Dr. Anthony also announced.
