PRESS RELEASE – The United Workers’ Party welcomes the news of the calling of the next general elections. We are settled and perfectly poised to win the next election with a comfortable margin.
Because of our history, it is understandable that some members might be jittery due to the short eighteen (18) day deadline.
This time around all the factors are coming together to ensure that the party is ready for victory at the polls. It is a fact that the SLP has been a national disaster. Their every initiative has been at a devastating cost to the people of St. Lucia rich, poor and middle class.
The SLP has failed to bring transparency, accountability, growth, jobs and has failed on almost every other election promise they have made. The SLP is a lesson on how destructive a bad government can be. They are a disaster of a government led by a delusional prime minister. St Lucians have not forgotten the lie disguised as a promise to inject 100 million dollars into the economy IMMEDIATELY.
We have not forgotten that five years later absolutely nothing has been done about our astronomical unemployment rate, increase crime and spike in the cost of St Lucians are a resilient people, an un-forgetting people, and wool will not be pulled over our eyes by the master of illusions this time around.
The United Workers Party has consistently shown that with proper plans come, delivery. Our policies under the torch will lights our way slowly but surely back into office to deliver much needed relief to our ailing country.
In the fight to rescue St. Lucia from the destructive hands of the SLP, changes have to be made and the UWP is ready to make that change. The leader of the UWP Allen Chastanet and his candidates has constantly been hitting the ground and shaping structured policies to building a new St. Lucia.
