The recent appointment of Jadia Jn Pierre-Emmanuel as Communication Director of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has raised many concerns for the opposition camp.
On Sunday, United Workers Party (UWP) leader Allen Chastanet took a bold step to question Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony on the political platform, about the source of Jn Pierre-Emmanuel’s salary.
Chastanet said he heard that the prime minister made mention that the money to pay Jn Pierre-Emmanuel came from business people and called on him to reveal their names.
“So I want to ask the Prime Minister which business people are paying Jadia’s salary…Is it the same business people that have to get an ambassadorship to protect their millions of dollars?” he told Sunday’s meeting.
Jn Pierre -Emmanuel resigned as the PM Press Secretary having served over two years in that position.
Her previous salary was EC$8,000.
