St Lucia election: Final push for votes
Political parties in St Lucia are making their final pitch for votes before Monday’s general election.
The ruling St Lucia Labour Party (SLP), led by Prime Minister Dr Kenny Anthony, and the main opposition United Workers Party (UWP), headed by Allen Chastanet, will be out to woo voters at rallies later today.
Dr Anthony and his team will be in the southeast coast community of Micoud, while Chastanet and his team will be on the outskirts of the capital at Cul De Sac.
However, reports reaching Barbados TODAY are that the country has been inundated with heavy rains which could affect attendance at the rallies.
The poll is a straight fight between the SLP and the UWP. However, several independent candidates and minority parties are also seeking places in the 17-seat parliament.
