United Workers’ Party (UWP) candidate for the Soufriere by-election, Higgs Adams, has expressed confidence in his chances at victory.
At the UWP’s ‘Rally in the Colour Purple’, on Saturday, he stated that residents of Soufriere have made their support for his party known.
“We are going to win in this constituency! You know why we are going to win? Because the people in the Soufriere constituency have decided that no more, you cannot fool them anymore,” Adams said. “So, that is why they are sending a clear message this time around that we are going to win in this constituency.”
He reiterated a promise made to the people of the Soufriere constituency, saying: “please put your trust in me. I will never let you down.”
Adams pleaded for constituents’ support, to effect change within the constituency.
In the 2014 general election, Adams lost to recently-resigned Minister Ian Pinard, receiving 822 votes, while Pinard received 1,326 ballots.
The UWP candidate will be facing the Dominica Labour Party’s (DLP) Denise Charles in the by-election in that constituency, which will be held on June 7.
