United Workers Party (UWP) candidate for Laborie, Francisco Jn Pierre, seems least bothered by the comments made about him at a Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) rally on Sunday by his daughter.
Senior Jn Pierre told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that while he has listened to the words uttered by Communications Director of the SLP, Jadia Jn Pierre-Emmanuel, he will not be distracted by it.
“I’m not too particular in getting into any ‘war of words’ with Jadia. I mean, whatever I have said before it’s true and I don’t really want to go into any battle,” he explained.
The UWP candidate said while persons are of the view that she should not have attacked him, senior Jn Pierre said he is fully aware that she is doing the work of the SLP.
“That is politics and it’s her opinion. I will not get into what she is saying. It’s everybody’s right to think or feel how they want. I am not going to get into a to and fro,” he asserted.
Senior Jn Pierre said he will remain focused on the issues affecting the people of Laborie and by extension all Saint Lucians, and will work hard to ensure that he is afforded the opportunity to represent them.
Jadia had said that if she was voting in Laborie, she would rather support the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) Alva Baptiste, over her father.
She also stated that she hopes that the UWP is taught a lesson and that her father loses in Laborie.
