BROOKLYN, NY – The main opposition St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has claimed victory in the general election on Monday as St. Lucian voters stuffed their frustration into the ballot boxes and rejected the Allen Chastanet administration after only a one five year term in office.

In addition, voters created history in the Caribbean by electing two independent candidates to the 17-member Parliament, among them, being the former prime minister Stephenson King, who quit the ruling United Workers Party (UWP) to contest the Central North constituency, which he has been representing for nearly three decades as an independent.

SLP leader Phillip J. Pierre, speaking on Choice TV, said that he was “elated” thanking also his supporters in Castries East, who ensured that he won the seat for the sixth consecutive occasion, defeating Fortuna Belrose.
