Vendors Association President Says Mayor ‘Out Of Order’

The President of the Vendors Association, Peter ‘Ras Ipa’ Isaac, has said that Castries Mayor, Peterson Francis, was out of order in a public spat with Police Commissioner, Sevein Moncherry.

“I mean, you are trying to pick a quarrel with the police commissioner?” Isaac said.

The Vendors Association President told St Lucia Times that he liked the way the Police Chief responded to the Mayor.

The top cop told St Lucia Times that the Mayor’s remarks about him were untrue.

“He outright said that the Mayor is  liar and I agree with him just putting it bluntly.”

Isaac recalled his own spats with the Castries Mayor.

“He has done it to me and look, now he is doing it to the Commissioner of Police,” he declared.

The Police Chief had asserted that the problem with the Castries Mayor began when he, the Commissioner, refused to administer the oath to someone hired by the Castries Constituency Council (CCC).

Although the Police Chief did not go into details, he is widely believed to have been referring to a member of the City Police Department.

The Vendors Association President told St Lucia Times that the CCC cannot have someone going around wanting to search people and wanting to arrest them while not being a police officer.

“They ask the Commissioner to give them some kind of document, the Police Commissioner said ‘No, they’re not approving that individual’ and they went about still employing him in the constabulary,”  Isaac stated.

As for the Mayor’s assertion that he would apply for the post of Police Commissioner should it become vacant, the Vendors Association President declared that the statement was absurd.

“This is ridiculous! Who does Peterson Francis really think he is? This person does not know his place,” Isaac stated.

He said that the Mayor’s comments suggest that the police commissioner is not doing his job.

  1. IPA no mater what the mayor or the Gov do you will never support, i wander what they promiss you to be so negative.

  2. The Mayor encroaches beyond his bounds. People have lavished pride on him for his stint so far as mayor. This has transformed him into an arrogant, egomaniacal person. Stay in your lane and do your job. Stop encroaching in waters where you can’t swim. Your monumental ego needs deflating. A good leader is one who is humble not sits up on his high horse and look down on people with contempt. I see you do this to IPA, tried to marginalize him and subject him to public ridicule. You badly need a dose of humility. Cease from your egotistical ways by stop being so recalcitrant and combative.
