The General Secretary of the St Lucia Labour Party has described as significant, the victory of their counterparts in Dominica led by Roosvelt Skerrit.

The Dominica Labour Party has won the general elections there convincingly capturing 15 of the 21 seats in the island’s Parliament, the fourth consecutive electoral win for the party, according to preliminary results.

Reacting to the Victory Mr Leo Clark has conveyed congratulations to the DLP but has cautioned against what he calls importing its victory into St Lucia.

Mr Clarke has also chided the leader and other members of the United Workers Party in St Lucia for what he described as interference in the politics of Dominica in the run up to Monday’s elections there.

He has described a decision by a contingent to Dominica led by Allen Chastanet as hypocritical.

 Mr Clarke has also reacted to suggestions by the Dominica Labour Party that would have delivered the campaign promise of “better days” in the run up to the general elections there.

The mantra was also used by the St Lucia Labour Party ahead of the 2011 general elections here.

The DLP win also bucked a recent trend in the Caribbean of opposition parties sweeping to power, with few exceptions, notably in Barbados.
