Saint Lucia 2019
Saint Lucia. In January, the opposition in Parliament aroused distrust of Prime Minister Allen Chastanet. The reason was, according to opposition leader Philip J. Pierre (Saint Lucia’s workers’ party), that ministers in private conversations expressed dissatisfaction with Chastanet. Through the statement of disbelief, Pierre wanted to make these politicians public. However, during a record-breaking debate, MPs belonging to the United Labor Party government assured that they supported the Prime Minister. In the vote, which ended with the numbers 11–6 in favor of the government, all parliamentarians were loyal to their party.
