Office of PM denounces Facebook message

Press Release:-The Office of the Prime Minister states categorically that a recent post to the facebook platform on Independence Day attributed to the Honourable Prime Minister Allen M. Chastanet was not approved by the Office of the Prime Minister.

The public is asked to note that the Government of Saint Lucia’s Official statement for Independence Day, February 22nd 2017, was delivered on behalf of the Government by Minister for Equity, Social Justice and Empowerment Honourable Lenard Montoute at Wednesday’s Independence Youth Rally at the Daren Sammy Cricket Stadium.

During the period of Independence the Prime Minister delivered three statements which included a recorded Independence message to the Diaspora, an address to the audience at the Independence Ball and a brief impromptu introduction of the Minister designated officially to give the Government’s Independence Message Minister Montoute at the Youth Rally.  

The Communications Unit of the Office of the Prime Minister wishes to make it clear that as soon as we became aware of the reported facebook post we immediately removed it from circulation.

The only persons authorized to approve postings on the page is the Prime Minister himself and the Senior Communications Officer for the Government.

Since this Government assumed office it appears that there were still individuals who had access to the Prime Minister’s facebook page who made the posting without authorization.

This has since been addressed internally and we assure the public this situation will not happen again and we will do all within our power to maintain the integrity of our official social media platforms.

Despite not authorizing the mentioned facebook post we apologize for any misunderstandings or misconceptions it may have created.

    PM will probably post some half-assed truth to our eyes. As a PM, your action is every Lucians’ concern

      Who cares if the message went on his FB Page. The answer one needs to know is whether the speech was delivered or not? If it was delivered in writing or in speech, then he has to admit it was plagiarized

      Idiot, what was posted was not a letter, it was a written speech. Speeches are in audio. He highlighted the speeches he had. Check out the audios.

      That is how stupid a hack you are.

    What a joke !!!!!! This administration has St.Lucia as the laughing stock of the Caribbean. They have yet done anything in an acceptable manner. The time is due when we will have to shut down the Island for fresh elections if they continue in this manner.

      Pray tell. How is St.Lucia the laughing stock of the Caribbean?

      Let me guess you have compared St.Lucia to islands spanning from Bahamas to Guyana and having done an in depth analysis of each island ,you have come to the conclusion that of all the islands we are the laughing stock.

    That’s the problem with lies. Somebody is bound to believe them, especially when they are uttered by those who project a genuine profile. But the PM must simply ignore this falsehood and pray for his detractors so that they may not suffer unduly before they die.

    At least the calypso was entertaining and it was not of the ” mepris” type. Good job whoever contributed this musical comment. Perhaps other contributors and our local calypsonians should take note.
