Anthony: Too many BLPites


Share post:

ST LUCIA’S PRIME MINISTER Dr Kenny Anthony has expressed concern about an “unprecedented” number of Barbadian “political operatives” involved in the opposition United Workers Party (UWP) campaign for Monday’s general elections.

“This degree of engagement is abnormal. I’ve never seen so many Barbadian political operatives in one country and certainly in St Lucia at any one time,” he said.

In a telephone link-up from Castries yesterday, Anthony identified a number of people connected to the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) as being in the forefront of the opposition’s campaign.

He also spoke of learning that leader of the BLP and Opposition Leader in Barbados Mia Mottley was in St Lucia but gave him the assurance that she was merely on holiday and not getting involved in domestic politics. (TS)
