PRESS RELEASE – The Castries North Constituency Branch of the United Workers Party is appalled at recent statements made by the Political Leader of the United Workers Party Allen Chastenet, to the effect that our current constituency representative Hon. Stephenson King must decide soon whether he wants to continue representing the party at the next general elections.
The branch wishes to make it abundantly clear that consistent with the party’s constitution it will be integrally involved in any candidate selection for the constituency and pledges its unflinching support of Hon. Stephenson King as its candidate to contest the next general elections.
Further, the branch is urging the political leader to concentrate his efforts at the reunification of the party instead of engaging in cheap and out of place talk in the media, which only serves to further erode cohesion within the UWP.
The branch is of the firm view that such public utterances by Mr. Chastenet are regrettable and encourages the political leader to observe the well known biblical phrase that “there is a time to be silent and a time to speak.”
