UWP Supporters told take government handouts, but vote UWP to sustain the trend in winning more seats
Meanwhile, at a UWP meeting in Soufriere on Thursday, Wesley MP Ezekiel Bazil told party supporters, not to fooled by any handouts given by the DLP, and not to allow any such handouts to affect their vote.
However, he told UWP supporters do not feel guilty about taking whatever is offered to them by the government.
He assured them that the DLP cannot stop the UWP, and the by-election in the Soufriere constituency is the first step that can strengthen the oppositions numbers in Parliament, and thereby continue the trend which started in the last general election, whereby the UWP won three additional seats. He said a win in this By-Election will sustain that momentum, and help the party to win the next general election.
