St Lucia’s UWP to hold mid-year conference

The main opposition United Workers Party (UWP) is planning to hold a mid-year conference amid calls for a major revamping of its leadership after it lost the November 28 general election last year.

Outgoing chairman of the UWP, Clem Bobb and first vice chairman, Oswald Augustine have already called on former Prime Minister Stephenson King to step down in accordance with the party constitution to allow for new leadership.

Mr Bobb acknowledged that the party’s 11-6 drubbing at the polls by the St Lucia Labour Party (SLP) may have exposed the leadership’s inability to craft a successful strategy to win an election.

Mr Bobb says something has to be done to address what he describes as the weak leadership of the former prime minister, adding that in several instances Mr King was unable to make firm decisions.
