Saint Lucia PM sets late July date for elections

|

Citizens of Saint Lucia will go to the polls on 26 July. The election was announced by the Prime Minister, Hon Allen Michael Chastanet on 5 July. Voters will elect all 17 members of the House of Assembly.

Chastanet is seeking a second term for his United Workers Party, which currently has 11 seats. He is promising a universal health insurance programme, a reduction in VAT and provision of electronic textbooks for students.

Making a dig at his opponents’ expense, Chastanet said: “While the Labour Party has been beating pans, we have been busy making plans and these plans are for your future, plans which are designed to help hard-working Saint Lucians and to develop our country by moving it forward.”

Chastanet ended by making a plea for tolerance and decency in the run-up to the elections, “During the campaign, let us treat each other with respect and kindness”
