Se­na­tor Fedee?

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Last week Op­po­si­tion Se­na­tor Ezechiel Joseph re­signed from the Up­per House. The de­ci­sion the STAR has since learnt was at the be­hest of his party, the United Work­ers Party, to which he agreed.The rea­son given was that the UWP wanted to give a younger can­di­date the ex­po­sure and the ex­pe­ri­ence of se­nate de­bates.

The for­mer Babon­neau MP and for­mer Min­is­ter of Agri­cul­ture’s res­ig­na­tion will take ef­fect from De­cem­ber 31, 2015. While the UWP has been tight-lipped about Joseph’s re­place­ment the STAR has been re­li­ably in­formed that Do­minic Fedee will take up the po­si­tion as UWP Se­na­tor come Jan­uary 2016.

In April of this year, Do­minic Fedee won a run off in Anse La Raye/Ca­naries to con­test that seat at the next gen­eral elec­tions on a UWP ticket. He was later en­dorsed by the party’s cen­tral body.

Do­minic Fedee has an ex­ten­sive back­ground in jour­nal­ism and has worked with DBS and Ra­dio Saint Lucia in the past. He is also an avid crick­eter and cricket com­men­ta­tor. Cur­rently he serves as San­dals Re­sorts In­ter­na­tional re­gional pub­lic re­la­tions man­ager.
