PM wishes House Speaker speedy recovery

Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has wished house speaker, Leonne Theodore-John, a speedy recovery following Tuesday’s session of parliament during which she had to be taken to hospital after feeling unwell.

The session had to be adjourned.

“On behalf of the Government of Saint Lucia and the Honourable Members of Parliament, I wish the Honourable Speaker of the House Mrs. Leonne Theodore-John a speedy recovery following yesterday’s House of Parliament session,” Chastanet said in a statement.

“I have since spoken to the Speaker of the House and she is in good spirits and doing much better and we continue to pray for her full recovery,” the prime minister said.

St Lucia Times understands that the Speaker was due to be discharged from Tapion hospital today, Wednesday November 1, 2017.

    Dem fellas in the House stressing the Speaker out. The only way for her to de-stress would be for her to convince Chas t0 dissolve the House and call General Elections.
