A renowned Regional Pollster has announced the findings of a study conducted into the likely outcome of the General election slated for June 6th here. It was conducted by Caribbean Development research Studies Inc. between May 20th and 23rd

The findings were released during a news conference at the Bay Gardens Hotel where Peter Wickham informed that the sample consisted of a total of one thousand people from all seventeen constituencies.

The poll revealed that employment was a major concern for the electorate which was closely followed by the economy and crime.

The findings also suggest that while the two main political parties have an equal share of support from the electorate, uncertain voters will determine the outcome of the general elections.

According to Wickham, CADRES used its swing analysis to determine a critical factor of how the undecided vote could go. He says the analysis determined a likely possibility that it could be in favour of the United Workers Party.

Wickham has also compared the poll with a similar exercise conducted in St Lucia in 2015 to determine who is the most favoured candidate for Prime Minister.

Wickham says while the poll shows that the opposition now has momentum, it is no different with any other election poll previously conducted in St Lucia by CADRES ahead of any election.
