“I categorically state that there will be absolutely NO victimization. As of today, we must see each other as a St. Lucian and NOT a Labour Party supporter of UWP supporter. You elected us to help ALL St. Lucians and that is exactly what we will do,” Chastenet continued
The UWP Leader and now PM Elect Chastanet concluded “Again, I would like to say thank you for having confidence in the United Workers Party and in me to build a new St. Lucia for you!”
