For the past 20 years or so, the ULP has broken promise after promise to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Unemployment has increased exponentially.
In 2017, the IMF put youth unemployment at 46% and 30% among women. Projects have been started with no ending but the money is spent! One example is the sporting complex where money was provided by the government of Libya over 10 years ago. And now, in this election year, we should be happy with a basic rubber track, no lights and no stands!
It is hopeless for youths under the current situation that was created by the ULP. Victimisation is our lot if we don’t fall in line and shout, “Labour!”
They say tourism is the future of SVG but the actions by this government say the complete opposite. The Grenadines is neglected. The airport in Bequia is all but destroyed. Salt Whistle Bay is left for the water to erode, forcing citizens to scramble to save one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
But all is not lost. SVG still have hope with the NDP! The past manifesto of the NDP is still relevant today as the hospital is still in great need by all the citizens of SVG!
The plans the NDP has for agriculture is leaps and bounds ahead of the lack of action displayed by the ULP.
Job creation is also at the top of the NDP’s list of things. They will do to move SVG in the right direction.
