Prime Minister, the Hon. Andrew Holness has sent congratulations to leader of the St. Lucia Labour Party, Dr. Kenny Anthony on his victory in the St Lucia general elections yesterday November 28, 2011.
In his congratulations, PM Holness said the move by Dr. Anthony to immediately assume ministerial responsibilities and not celebrate the victory with a public holiday is unprecedented and indicates the serious approach that leaders should take in driving the transformation of their countries.
Mr Holness said Prime Minister Anthony's government and the people of St Lucia will continue to enjoy the support and goodwill of the Jamaican people. PM Holness said he looked forward to working with Dr Anthony to strengthen the cultural ties of the Caribbean region.
The St. Lucia Labour Party returned to power in Monday's general election, five years after it was defeated by the United Workers Party.
