Emma Hippolyte: I received a spiritual calling

Gros Islet MP, Emma Hippolyte, has revealed that she received a spiritual calling to enter politics.

Hippolyte, who is also Minister of Commerce, Business Development, Investment and Consumer Affairs, made the statement last night during the MBC Television programme – Current Affairs.

“I was called to service. I never had in my career path being a politician, never planned, never dreamt of it, so for me it was a calling and to that calling I said yes, regardless of the financial implications for me and everything else,” the Minister disclosed.

She asserted that she has remained true to that spiritual calling, rooted in the people and continuing to be true to the commitment she made when she entered politics.

Hippolyte explained that the commitment she made was to honest, hardworking, God fearing and living a life of service.

She remains confident of retaining the Gros Islet seat in the next elections.

In response to the question of whether there should be term limits in politics, her response was:

“If you understand that it is a calling, the same manner in which you are called, the same manner you will get the nod that it is time to leave.”

In connection with her main project accomplishments in the constituency since being elected, the Gros Islet MP cited the road network in the community.

“ Gros Islet has a significant network of residential roads, the largest in the country and I have used every cent of my allocation from the Taiwanese funds to place quality concrete roads in almost every community in the constituency,” she declared.

    Interesting…actually quite enlightening. Being true to a spiritual calling to build roads? I don’t get the common sense of that but I guess “the learned” know what they’re talking about.

    We are admonished to test the spirits to know its source. So, as the “Devil’s Bridge” comes to mind [pun intended, hehe] I’m inclined to ask; “What spirit/s called the MP?” If the people are happy, then God is happy and vice versa. For the voice of the people [especially the disadvantaged] is the voice of God – that shall speak loudly and clearly in the ballot box. God is Love.

    Spiritual calling and Emma promised if elected she would terminate the gambling machines. She was elected and the machines never stopped. Whilst she was away her powers were ursuped, the licence renewed and even more machines added. She did nothing about it and when questioned by a reporter she only giggled.
    Spiritual callings and broken promises don’t mix

    What trouble is this? M’am, if the name of your spiritual leader is Kenny Anthony, then you and his entire cult are in deep trouble. You need deliverance the m’am.
