The DLP held its first ‘victory train’ in Coulibistrie on Friday, to officially endorse its new candidate. Royer said the United Workers Party was not serious about representing the people.
“During the last election campaign I told you that the UWP have no intention to represent you. They have done this before and doing it now is no secret. I can recall during the period after Hurricane Dean, when the Prime Minister wanted to help the farmers, your former leader said the farmers were being bought. They have proven time and time again that representing the people is not what they are after,” he said.
According to Royer, the UWP keeps talking about corruption and not about development.
“This is proof that these people have no intention to represent you,” he added.
Meantime Deputy Leader of the DLP Ambrose George told last night’s gathering that if the people of Salisbury take their lives seriously, they will vote for Royer.
The DLP also officially endorsed Dayton Baptiste on Saturday evening. Baptiste will contest the Marigot seat for the DLP.
