Monday 19 September 2011 In keeping with international “best practices” and good governance Prime Minister Stephenson King has invited internationally recognized and regional agencies to play a “watch dog” role in relation to the next General Elections in Saint Lucia which is constitutionally due no later than March 2012. The agencies written to by Prime Minister King were the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Organisation of American States and the Caricom.


The letters from the Saint Lucian Prime Minister were written to Mr. Kamalash Sharma, Commonwealth Secretary General; José Miguel Insulza, Secretary General of the Organization of American States and Ambassador Irwin La Rocque, Secretary General of Caricom. In his letter of invitation, Prime Minister Stephenson King requested that they formalize “Observer Missions” to monitor the conduct of the next General Elections in Saint Lucia.


The decision by Prime Minister King to request regular Observer Missions by these agencies is in keeping with his desire that there should be no doubt in the outcome of the next General Elections. In his invitation to the agencies in question, Prime Minister King noted that there was no history of misdeeds in the conduct of General Elections in Saint Lucia. To date positive responses have been received from both the OAS and Caricom.
