PRESS RELEASE – The United Workers Party (UWP) congratulates the new Executive Committee of the Media Workers Association of Saint Lucia (MASL) elected at the association’s first Biennial General Meeting held over the weekend.
The UWP wishes to encourage the new Executive as they seek to strengthen and provide sound representation to the local media fraternity.
The party is mindful of the challenges faced by media personnel in this country. Recent threats and acts of intimidation targeting local media personnel, as well as media houses, have drawn the attention of established international media institutions.
We nonetheless would like to encourage the executive of the MASL to work steadfastly in the promotion and support of a professional, objective and fearless media.
The United Workers Party remains committed to maintaining a harmonious and mutually respectful relationship with the local media.
The party extends best wishes and success to the new executive.
