St. Lucia: Opposition Leaders Wants Government to Rethink Approach to National Development

The Leader of the Opposition says 2017 has been a particularly challenging year for St Lucians who, he says, have been marginalized on account of their differing views from the current government.

Phillip J Pierre made the statements in his Christmas message to the nation.

He implored the government to rethink its approach to national development and pledged his support for “all initiatives” that will alleviate the incidence of crime.

“In this time of goodwill, I call on the government to rethink its approach to national development and commence the process of engaging the gifts and talents of all its people in pursuit of the common good,” Pierre said. “It’s the only way we become a better and stronger nation,” he continued.

Pierre, the Parliamentary Representative for Castries-East, said St Lucians must be grateful for being spared the ravages of hurricanes in 2017. He urged St Lucians to remember “our neighbours, particularly Dominica, who suffered a loss of life and property.”

Pierre also thanked his constituents for their “unwavering support”.
