THE Lucian People’s Movement (LPM) is currently forging ahead with plans to host its first national convention under the theme “Committed to building a better Saint Lucia.”
The convention, which will be held at La Ressource, Dennery, is expected to bring together a total of 170 delegates from around the island. This supreme body of delegates, which will thereafter be referred to as the People’s Congress, will then move to enact its solemn responsibility of electing an official National Council.
Several young persons, including other senior members of the LPM, are expected to vie for a number of key positions on the National Council, which will consist of the following officers: political leader, deputy political leader, chairperson, general secretary, assistant general secretary, treasurer, field coordinator, public relations officer and youth coordinator.
A party statement said the LPM hopes to contest all 17 constituencies in the next election and has already begun to expand its search for candidates and volunteers with the necessary skills, aptitude and innovative mindset to enable them to deliver deep and lasting social, economic and political progress in Saint Lucia.
