The rift between PNP supporters and their Member of Parliament of South East St. Ann, Youth and Culture Minister, Lisa Hanna, is intensifying.

On Tuesday, PNP General Secretary, Paul Burke, confirmed that he had intervened in the dispute to resolve issues between PNP councilors in the constituency and MP Hanna.

But a former member of the PNP’s South East St. Ann constituency executive is this afternoon demanding the intervention of Prime Minister and PNP President, Portia Simpson Miller.

The former member of the PNP’s South East St. Ann constituency executive, Courtney Wallace, says comrades are vexed at the style of representation being given to the constituency by Lisa Hanna.


A number of calls placed this afternoon to Miss Hanna’s mobile phone went to voicemail.

Up to earlier this week the Youth and Culture Minister, who’s also chairman of the PNP’s Region 1, was off the island on Government business.

South East St. Ann is one of the PNP’s rural strongholds.

Mr. Wallace says a number of comrades in the constituency are fed up and are seeking the intervention of the Prime Minister and PNP President.

Mr. Wallace says on December 30, PNP General Secretary, Paul Burke convened a meeting between Miss Hanna, her councilors and angry comrades.

But he says things have not improved.
