Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has has refused to be drawn on whether Governor General, Dame Pearlette Louisy, has been asked to resign.
Asked about the matter today, the Prime Minister observed that the Governor General occupied her current post for the past nineteen years.
Chastanet expressed the hope that she can complete her 20th year.
But he observed that it is ‘very unusual’ to have a Governor General in position for such a length of time.
“I have had no discussion with the Governor General at this time that I am going to make public – at the end of the day the Governor General will make whatever announcement she wants at any time,” Chastanet told reporters.
He said that like most Saint Lucians, he has the greatest respect for Dame Pearlette Louisy.
However Chastanet disclosed that he will let her make whatever pronouncements she wants to make.
Dame Pearlette Louisy is the first woman to hold the office of Governor General of Saint Lucia.
She was sworn in on September 19, 1997.
