13 Sep

The leader of the main opposition St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP), Phillip J. Pierre says he will file a motion of no confidence in the government of Prime Minister Allen Chastanet.

The ruling United Workers Party (UWP), which won the June 6, 2016 general election has 11 seats while the SLP, which was defeated in that poll has six seats.

Pierre told reporters that all six opposition legislators will be voting for the motion.

The announcement by the SLP leader comes after the party staged a massive demonstration in the capital on Sunday with supporters calling on Prime Minister Chastanet to call fresh general elections claiming that his policies were hurting the socio-economic development of the island.
