Dame Pear­lette Helps the Queen Cel­e­brate her 90th Birth­day!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

While Saint Lu­cians talked and talked, some in dis­be­lief (yet again) about the re­sult of the con­tro­versy-plagued 2016 gen­eral elec­tions Saint Lu­cia’s gov­er­nor gen­eral Dame Pear­lette Louisy re­moved her­self to Lon­don to join in the cel­e­bra­tion of the Queen’s 90th birth­day.

Doubt­less it was a wel­come break for the Dame. Mean­while many here are won­der­ing if she will con­tinue in her po­si­tion af­ter Prime Min­is­ter Allen Chas­tanet’s Cab­i­net has been sworn in. She be­came gov­er­nor gen­eral when Kenny Anthony re­placed Vaughan Lewis as this is­land’s prime min­is­ter in 1997. Many ex­pected a re­place­ment when Sir John re­turned to of­fice in 2006 but the Dame sur­vived. Who knows what the next week will bring and what will be her next move? We wish her only the best!
