The resignation of Jadia Jn Pierre Emmanuel as Press Secretary to the Prime Minister, Doctor Kenny Anthony, is a sign that general elections are close, a well informed source has told the Times.
According to the source, Emmanuel has quit to take over Communications matters in the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).
“Elections are quite near,” the source told the Times, adding that the SLP was oiling its machinery for the polls and the eventual announcement of an election date by the Prime Minister.
Asked about reports that a well known female television journalist and anchor was in line to succeed Emmanuel, the Times source would neither confirm or deny.
“I would not comment on that,” was the response.
Earlier another source had made it clear that there was nothing “sinister” about Emmanuel’s resignation.
