THE EDITOR: The consistent dialogue from the MP for Castries South in regard to the formula for the utilization of CIP funds prepared by the former administration was apparently flawed and the current administration had little choice but to regularize the formula.
The current administration is of the opinion that all funds received must be deposited into a sovereign fund and hence the reason why CIP agents should not be permitted to have Carte Blanch over state funds.
The purpose of the funds is to address the infrastructure and social needs of St. Lucia.
The member for Castries South keeps harping on transparency while the nation awaits to know all what transpired on his watch with the Juffali affair; and unless he can explain to the nation what transpired, his advice and credibility remains in question.
A little knowledge is sometimes dangerous and no amount of TV appearances, online statements and contributions in parliament can change reality.
It is common knowledge amongst the greater population of St. Lucia that every decision made by the current administration is ‘opposed for opposing sake’. But this is not the way that countries operate, as democracy represents a philosophy of our DNA.
