A New Press Sec­re­tary for PM?

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The “un­of­fi­cial” word on the ground is that Ja­dia Jn Pierre Em­manuel, press sec­re­tary to the prime min­is­ter, has re­signed. This af­ter be­ing on the job for four years. The press sec­re­tary pro­ceeded on va­ca­tion late last year and since then Terry Fin­istiere has been act­ing in her stead.

Ja­dia Jn Pierre Em­manuel was ap­pointed press sec­re­tary in 2011 fol­low­ing vic­tory at the polls by the Saint Lu­cia Labour Party at the last gen­eral elec­tion when Kenny An­thony was sworn in as prime min­is­ter.

She has since made a name for her­self, not just by call­ing in to var­i­ous talk shows to de­fend the govern­ment’s po­si­tion, but by also ex­press­ing her per­sonal views on var­i­ous is­sues on her per­sonal Face­book page. She also in­tro­duced a govern­ment PR pro­gramme, ‘In Touch’ to Choice Tele­vi­sion.

The STAR has also been re­li­ably in­formed that a fe­male tele­vi­sion jour­nal­ist has been iden­ti­fied to fill Ja­dia’s shoes.

Since his first stint as prime min­is­ter in 1997 un­til now, Kenny An­thony has had as his press sec­re­tary Claudius Fran­cis, who also re­signed, mak­ing way for Earl Bous­quet. Vir­nette St. Omer served as press sec­re­tary un­der the last SLP ad­min­is­tra­tion.
