St Vincent’s Gonsalves ‘to seek fourth term in 2015’

“There’s no vacancy in the ULP whether in terms of its leadership or prime ministership,” he told the 40 member Vincentian community of mostly students here on Saturday. 

“Now I am not going to live forever. And the truth is this, you have a run of three consecutive five-year term, it is not a bad run,” said Gonsalves, who has been prime minister since 2001.

Only Sir James Mitchell has been prime minister of the multi-island nation longer, with four successive terms from 1984 to 2000.

Despite a health scare just as he was travelling to the Middle East in late April and his own repeated statements that he would not seek re-election, Gonsalves suggested that the ULP had determined he should stand again.
