The Government and people of St. Lucia express condolences and sympathies with the Government and people of Dominica over the death of the late former Prime Minister, Dame Eugenia Charles. Dame Eugenia was a candid and forthright woman of strong character and integrity who was respected by all including her political opponents.

Serving as Prime Minister for three consecutive terms from 1980 to 1995, Dame Eugenia presided over the islandís immediate post-independence development.

A leading political figure of the Caribbean, she will be remembered, not only for her role in the US invasion of Grenada during the Reagan Administration, but also for her firm defence of the political principles in which she believed.

Dame Eugenia was a major contributor to the pride of Caribbean women and during her reign she inspired many young women to take the political road.

The people of Dominica, St. Lucia and the Caribbean have lost a formidable political figure, who served with distinction and dignity, and who departed from the political field with grace and humility.

She will always be remembered as we share in the grief of her loss.

Philip J. Pierre
Acting Prime Minister
