He was appointed as prime minister in 2007 in the wake of the death of Sir John Compton.In his initial statement following the victory, Dr. Anthony said residents needed to focus on rebuilding the country, adding “there is a hard job ahead of all of us.”Jamaica’s People’s National Party (PNP) led by Portia Simpson Miller has congratulated the SLP on its success.The PNP president said the party, under the leadership of Dr Anthony, has returned to power to continue the work that was started years ago and to provide the high quality of governance for which the party has become known.“During his tenure as prime minister 1997 – 2006, Dr Anthony led St Lucia to record investments in tourism, infrastructure and general economic development,” Simpson Miller said.
