The United Workers Party (UWP) acknowledges the decision by the Labour Administration to erect the statue of Sir John Compton at Constitution Park in the center of the Capital, Castries.

This marks the ultimate recognition of Sir John as the indisputable Father of the Nation. It also celebrates the life of a man who was vilified by political forces throughout his political life, and the full acknowledgement of the incomparable and invaluable contribution Sir John made towards the social and economic advancement of Saint Lucia.

The monument to be erected in the honour of Sir John will allow Saint Lucians to reflect on the life and times of Sir John, and the sacrifices he made during his political career. This action by the Labour administration is a reflection of the philosophy of Sir John--that politics, particularly in a small nation like St Lucia should be marked by a fellowship and respect for one another, that keeps the society together.

Sir John will be remembered as a giant of both Saint Lucian and Caribbean politics, who has left his indelible footprints on the sands of Saint Lucia’s history.

The United Workers Party also acknowledges the outstanding work of Saint Lucian sculptor, Ricky George, for creating the monument of Sir John which will stand as testimony of his greatness.
