Stuart: Many plans in works
Prime Minister Freundel Stuart says the ruling?Democratic Labour Party (DLP) has a stellar record that can compare with that of any Caribbean political institution.
And, according to Stuart, his Government has so many plans in place to advance this country, it will require four terms in office.
Stuart made these disclosures at an induction ceremony for party members before a standing room audience at its George Street headquarters in Belleville, Wednesday night.
This country’s seventh Prime Minister told the more than 500 inductees that the DLP intended to remain in power to complete its objectives.
“In fact, our dreams are so big that we need about four terms to do it and we have the manpower and the womanpower to realize the objectives which we have set for ourselves.
“You are not joining the DLP?tonight [Wednesday], as it were, to jump on any bandwagon. There is hard work to do,” he said.
Misha and Oya, two of the three daughters of late Prime Minister David Thompson, were among the inductees.
“Like our father, the former leader of this party, we intend to fully participate in the political process with all our energy,” Misha said.
“We want to give the assurance that as young people we will continue to hold the name of the Democratic Labour Party in high esteem as proud new members,” Oya said.
The party’s activities continue today at George Street with a lunchtime lecture by founding member Sir Frederick Smith.
