The main opposition United Workers Party (UWP) has won Monday’s general election denying Prime Minister Dr Kenny Anthony an opportunity of leading his St Lucia Labour Party (SLP) to a second consecutive five year term in office.

Preliminary results show that the UWP won 11 of the 17 seats at stake, reversing the results of the 2011 general election, when the SLP won by the same margin.
