Discourse on the constitution of St Lucia

By Caribbean News Global fav

TORONTO, Canada –  The government of Saint Lucia is attempting to be virtuous, in search of prudence on constitutional reform, in particular, at the sitting of parliament February 23, 2021.

As published in the Boundaries commission and constitutional reform puckishness in the parliament of Saint Lucia, the following is reiterated.

Discourse on the constitution

The Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) commenced constitutional reform in 2012, and four years later, June 6, 2016, was voted out of office.

In September 2017, opposition leader Philip J. Pierre nominated two persons to the special parliamentary committee which a United Workers Party (UWP) administration resolved would set the pace for constitutional reform.

Perhaps the UWP Cabinet, parliament and prime minister Allen Chastanet should explain beyond shameless hypocrisy and crocodile tears:

  • What transpired on assuming office in 2016?
  • What is the progress following the discourse on constitutional reform broadcast on NTN March 6, 2017?
  • What is the status of the agreement to achieving constitutional reform?
  • What is the next step?
  • Was prime minister Chastanet’s performance in parliament (February 23 – 24, 2021) a red herring on the heels of general elections?

For a revisionist history of the sanctimonious, perhaps the – Discourse on the Constitution (Pt IV) – streamed live on March 6, 2017, will provide some clarity.
