Prime Minister's Office To Move

  1. 1. Upstairs AF Valmont, P.O. Box RB 2497, Rodney Bay, Gros Islet, Saint Lucia Tel/Fax: (758) 572-4949 Contact: Allen Chastanet– 722 - 4200 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE WHY BUILD A NEW OFFICE FOR THE PRIME MINISTER? CASTRIES, Saint Lucia – Tuesday, November 26, 2013 – The United Workers Party understands that the Office of the Prime Minister will be relocated to the old Golden Hope site at La Toc. Clean up commenced on Monday, November 25th, 2013, and construction is expected to begin shortly. The Party questions the rationale of the Saint Lucia Labour Government to incur this level of expenditure at this time for a project that is not going to bring relief to the poor and underprivileged or make a meaningful contribution to the economy. What is equally disturbing is the fact that the Prime Minister just recently spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to refurbish his office and the office of other Ministers. The Labour Party Administration continues to show its insensitivity to the plight of the citizens and lack of vision to grow the economy. The citizens have and continue to suffer as a result of Government’s decision to eliminate the subsidy on rice, flour and sugar; increase the price of fuel and to apply VAT to medicine. Despite the clear and overwhelming evidence that their policies are not working, this Government continues to spend lavishly on foreign offices, employment of party executives, and the issuing of suspect contracts. Given the state of the economy and the fact that over 3000 jobs have been lost since this Administration took office, we categorically condemn the decision to spend money on a new office for the Prime Minster when the current one is more than adequate. In tough times like these a leader ought to lead by example, whether he intends to or not. Ends/
