Doddy Fran­cis on Cas­tries South Con­stiuency Can­di­date Se­lec­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

morn­ing of Fri­day 22nd May 2015, that I, Lorenzo ‘Doddy’ Fran­cis had been ‘de­feated by Ms. Mary Is­sac hav­ing par­tic­i­pated in a run-off for the Cas­tries South con­stituency.’

It is im­per­a­tive and fit­ting to note at this time that I, Lorenzo ‘Doddy’ Fran­cis was not present at any ap­par­ent ‘run-off’ and was un­aware of the farce which is be­ing pur­ported as a can­di­date se­lec­tion process. As such, to la­bel the event as a ‘win’ or ‘de­feat’ for any of the par­ties in­volved is lu­di­crous and whim­si­cal.

In­ad­ver­tently, but to the ben­e­fit of the Party, this sit­u­a­tion has prompted the re­ex­am­i­na­tion of the ‘can­di­date se­lec­tion process’, and as a uni­fied po­lit­i­cal en­tity, we in­tend to cor­rect ev­i­dent flaws in this process whereby seem­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tives are se­lected in the ab­sence of other con­test­ing can­di­dates.

I wish also to pub­licly and cat­e­gor­i­cally af­firm my com­mit­ment to my con­stituents and the United Work­ers Party. It is the duty of an elected of­fi­cial to im­prove the lives of in­di­vid­u­als through ser­vice by pro­vid­ing qual­ity rep­re­sen­ta­tion and op­por­tu­ni­ties for mo­bil­ity within the na­tional com­mu­nity. I, Lorenzo ‘Doddy’ Fran­cis, re­main com­mit­ted and ready to serve.”
