The opposition leader has called the past five years under the leadership of the UWP government as a failed experiment.

With this, the opposition has also called on people to choose and elect their prime minister wisely this time and added, “Two-Saint Lucia’s have been created with you, the people, placed at the bottom. It is time to start over and build back better.”

Following the statement, SLP added, “Vote for the Saint Lucia Labour Party.”

The Prime Minister of the island – Allen Chastanet, general elections in St Lucia have been delayed because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The opposition leader has stated that the UWP has failed in fulfilling its promises made to the residents of the island regarding the development of the nations.

SLP has a clear plan for this year’s elections, that is – fuel prices hike in the last five years, no significant infrastructural development, the contraction of the islands’ economy, and poor handling of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic by the UWP government and unemployment in the region.
