The candidate of One Seychelles political party in the coming presidential elections, Alain St. Ange’ expertise within the field of tourism cannot even be denied by rival camps.
As politician Gervais Henrie himself stated in court on 7 June 2018.
“No one can deny that St. Ange would have had a real chance at winning this [UNWTO] election. He [is] charismatic, energetic, friendly and [a] guy who get[s] things done.
Under his leadership in 2016 Seychelles welcome[d] over 300 000 tourist[s] which is a record…
“There were plenty of warnings that the [African Union] and Zimbabwe for that matter would not have take[n] Seychelles’ deception lightly but for Faure and his Cabinet to wait until the last minute while St. Ange was already in Madrid after a five month grueling campaign to pull the plug on his candidacy for the UNWTO’s top job shows a lack of long-term planning and that it is still standing in the dark.
“[Faure’s] administration has totally blind sided and humiliated St. Ange at the same time has tarnish[ed] Seychelles reputation in Africa.”
