(Loop News) United Workers Party Leader Allen Chastanet seems uncertain about his future following a devastating defeat at the July 26 general election.
The Former Saint Lucian Prime Minister has been on vacation following the election and has missed every sitting of the House of Parliament since.
In addition, the Micoud South MP is yet to meet with his constituents.
The Former Saint Lucian Leader’s absence has been heavily critiqued by various sections of the public, some arguing whether he will ever return to Saint Lucia.
On Wednesday, Chastanet called into A UWP radio and television programme to clear the air on matters surrounding his absence.
“At the end of the month, I will be back to Saint Lucia,” Chastanet said, stating that he will be present at the next sitting of Parliament.
However, the UWP leader is unsure what his fate with the Party will be upon his return.
“I just want to say that in no way am I making any decisions; what I am talking about is a process to prepare for a decision to be made.”
“I have to recognize, and I think everybody would also appreciate that, for the Party to be able to make a decision, I must make a decision myself,” Chastanet said.
However, the Opposition Leader says he remains committed to the people who voted for him, the constituency of Micoud South.
“That goes without saying!” Chastanet stated.
“I have no intentions of giving up the seat in Micoud South,” he declared.
While on vacation, Chastanet says he has been working towards creating a new entity that would give young people of Micoud South opportunities to work from home for major companies such as Apple and Google.
Chastanet is hoping that the initiative can be replicated throughout the island and the wider region.
