Francis: Media taking Green Party too seriously

Senator Julian Francis, the Unity Labour Party’s (ULP) Campaign Manager thinks the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Green Party “is an obstruction”.

Francis, sharing his views on the newest political entity in this General Election, said he believed the media is taking the SVG Green Party too seriously.{{more}}

“I find the Press is taken up too much with the Green Party,” said Francis on Wednesday at his Murray’s Road campaign office. Francis told the media the election campaign is being led by the ULP and he was expecting it to get more than 57 per cent of the vote at the polls.

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) Green Party was formerly launched on January 10, 2005. The launch was held at the residence of Ivan O’Neal.

O’Neal is the Leader of SVG Green Party and one of the co-founders.

The SVG Green Party’s website states that its policies are based on the need for long-term food, economic and social security in our country and environmental sustainability.

“We aim to encourage the development of an inclusive, safe society for all, eradicate illiteracy and poverty, empower the vulnerable, improve the health of the nation, create a fully employable workforce and reduce unemployment to single figures.”
