State­ment by Po­lice Com­mis­sioner on up­com­ing Na­tional Elec­tions

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

As Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice I take this op­por­tu­nity to thank my Ex­ec­u­tive Team and all other mem­bers of the Royal St. Lu­cia Po­lice Force for the pro­fes­sional and ef­fi­cient man­ner in which Saint Lu­cia Jazz 2016 was po­liced. Your hard work and ded­i­ca­tion con­trib­uted to mak­ing Jazz 2016 an in­ci­dent-free event.

As we con­tinue into the Elec­tion­eer­ing Pe­riod I wish to thank mem­bers of the public for their con­duct thus far. You have shown ma­tu­rity and re­spect for the rights of oth­ers. I im­plore you mem­bers of the public in the com­ing days, and par­tic­u­larly on Elec­tion Day, that you con­tinue to act re­spon­si­bly and re­spect the rights of oth­ers.

Ev­ery­one in Saint Lu­cia has a right to choose what­ever party or can­di­date he/she wishes to sup­port. How­ever, in ex­ert­ing this right you need to re­spect the right of oth­ers. Let us dur­ing this pe­riod and be­yond be more tol­er­ant, man­age our anger and use am­i­ca­ble ways to re­solve con­flict.

I call on ev­ery Saint Lu­cian to show the rest of the world that we can agree or dis­agree and when it mat­ters most, we can unite for the good of Saint Lu­cia.”
