After a historical victory in Saint Lucia’s 2021 General Elections on Monday, July 26th, the Leader of the Saint Lucia Labour Party, Philip J. Pierre will officially become Saint Lucia’s Prime Minister after he is sworn in today.
Pierre’s Labour Party captured thirteen (13) of the seventeen (17) constituencies including Micoud North a known yellow stronghold.
