KINGSTOWN, SVG (BreadFruit News) – On the campaign trail, Minister of Finance and Member of Parliament for East St. George Camillo Gonsalves shared a ‘secret’ with West Kingstown constituents over the weekend.
“I want to tell you a secret, when the votes are counted in the next general elections, the Unity Labour Party will be victorious in the next elections. None of the 8 seats currently represented by the ULP can be threatened by the NDP in the next election.”
“They cannot win none of the 8 seats the ULP currently have…they will not win North Leeward; they will not win East Kingstown. We are in West Kingstown to say, if the Unity Labour Party is already going to win, if the Unity Labour Party is going to increase our majority, a vote for any other party than the ULP is a wasted vote.”
The well-spoken son of the Prime Minister went on to say, “so knowing that secret, knowing the ULP will win again, the question you have to ask yourself here is why would you waste your vote on Daniel Cummings?”
“He has not served the constituency well in parliament. He has brought nothing new, only anger, bad mind, vile, viciousness. We know that he is living in the past. All that he talks about is CWSA.”
While Minister Gonsalves was attempting to encourage the supporters, the facts painted a different story. The New Democratic Party (NDP) won 14 out of 17 polling divisions in West Kingstown with a 444 margin in the last general elections held in 2015.
However, he remained hopeful that constituents will hear his plea:
“If you know Cummings can’t represent you in parliament, or in the highways and byways of West Kingstown, why would you waste your vote? He brings nothing to the table that Debbie can’t do better and of a higher quality than him.”
