St. Lucia (St. Lucia Times) – Former Gros Islet MP Lenard ‘Spider’ Montoute has accused the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) of being in election campaign mode, although in government.
The former MP spoke Wednesday night during the DBS Television programme Newsmaker Live where he attributed the United Workers Party (UWP) massive July 26, 2021, election loss to several factors.
They included circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic that made people dissatisfied.
In addition, Montoute, a casualty in the SLP landslide, said the labour party waged a campaign of attrition for years, including propaganda to which a UWP administration, busy with governance, did not effectively respond.
“We know they are very efficient and very effective in opposition, but not anything close to that in government,” Montoute, currently the UWP Public Relations Officer, said of the SLP.
According to the former Minister, the UWP in government is synonymous with progress and development.
