Former Press Secretary to the Prime Minister, Jadia Jn Pierre-Emmanuel has said that her father, Francisco Jn Pierre, stood a better chance at performing as a government minister, when compared to others.
In a recent Facebook post, Jn Pierre-Emmanuel said: “The face you make when Prime Minister Allen Chastanet try and take your father for papishow. Hello…he has a “gooder” chance of performing than lament! Sa pas right! Put some RESPECK on it!”
Jn Pierre – Emmanuel was referring to Senator Jimmy Henry as “lament.” Henry was appointed Minister in the Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries, Physical Planning, Natural Resources and Co-operatives.
But just one month ago, Jn Pierre-Emmanuel told Saint Lucia Labour Party supporters at a political rally that she would rather support the Member of Parliament for Laborie, Alva Bapstiste, than her father.
She had also said: “There is a lesson that you must teach the UWP in Laborie. For my sake, ensure that Francisco Jn Pierre losses his deposit and then the day after the election we will hold a big meeting…”
When asked to comment on the issue, senior Jn Pierre told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) on Thursday that he does not subscribe to his daughter’s Facebook page and he wold prefer not to comment on the issue.
He told SNO that despite his loss to Baptiste, he plans to continue advocating and working with the people of Laborie to ensure that the constituency is improved.
