Saint Lucia. The December 11 parliamentary elections resulted in a change of government. According to CountryAAH, oppositionist United Workers' Party (UWP) won big over ruling Saint Lucia Party (SLP), which held power for nine years. UWP took home eleven of the seventeen seats in the lower house, the House of Representatives, while SLP had to settle for six seats. There was a decline with eight mandates for SLP. UWHP party leader Sir John Compton, 81, said that as prime minister and head of government, he will invest heavily in law enforcement, which had become a major electoral issue.
