    Choosing a Successor for Sir John Compton.

    Choosing A Successor

    By a Correspondent
    While we mourn the passing of the Father of the Nation and continue to pray for his soul there is a crisis still to be solved …..who will officially take his place and become St. Lucia’s next Prime Minister?
    Under the Constitution of St. Lucia in circumstances such as this Her Excellency, the Governor General must, in her own deliberate judgment, choose from among the elected members of the House of Assembly the person most likely, in her opinion, to command the support of the majority of elected members.
    The sole criterion is the person most likely to command the support of the majority of elected members. Who did best at the polls in December last year is an irrelevance.
    The most obvious choice at this time is the Acting Prime Minister, the Honourable Stephenson King who has acted as Prime Minister since Sir John was struck down by a series of strokes which came shortly after the “super eight” took the decision to recognize Taiwan as opposed to mainland China, it is said contrary to the wishes of the late Sir John.


    It would appear that there is really only one candidate for the job at this time, and that is the Honourable Stephenson King. However, such is the nature of politics and the venality of some politicians there is little doubt that in the shadow of the casket deals will be sought to be struck, conditions for support will be demanded. A senior member of the ruling party expressed the hope that such compromises will be sternly pushed aside and properly rejected.
    Another member of the party expressed the view that Sir John paid the ultimate price to give vision to the future of St. Lucia. As he said, Sir John in his budget speech in April set out a road map for the next twenty years; no person interested only in himself should be allowed to use St. Lucia’s tragedy to advance personal ambition at the cost of the final gift of Sir John.
    Dignity, honesty and loyalty are the virtues that will be looked for by the people, said another person whose face reflected the tragedy that is of all of us.
