An Independent Voice for Micoud South
A retired Family Nurse Practitioner, Lelia Harracksingh who is affectionately known in the constituency as “Astreed,” provides free nursing care to scores of elderly and disadvantaged residents who value her service immensely. She is a former firebrand President of the Saint Lucia Nurses Association, and was instrumental in securing advances and better working conditions for nurses. Nurse Harracksingh is also very popular among the young people of the constituency where she continues to serve as the Leader of the Pathfinders and Masterguide Clubs, and is Vice President of her district’s Seventh Day Adventist Youth Ministry which serves from Mon Repos to Vieux Fort North. Although, Mrs. Harracksingh has unsuccessfully contested elections in the constituency since 1997, she has never had the endorsement of any of the two (2) main political parties until now. She is confident that with the backing of the Saint Lucia Labour Party, she will put an end to the poor representation of Mr. Arsene James in Micoud South and be part of the winning team which will form the next Government of Saint Lucia.
