'No Lisa, no Bunting', comrades chant at NEC meeting
ST CATHERINE, Jamaica – Chants of "no Lisa, no Bunting" rang out at the People’s National Party (PNP) National Executive Council meeting in St Catherine Sunday, where Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller reportedly announced that she will not be seeking re-election as party president next September.
"Lisa have the heart of a Labourite and a wear PNP clothes," one woman who was among the group chanting outside Cedar Grove Academy in Portmore, said.
Another alleged that Lisa Hanna, the member of Parliament for St Ann South East, does not support Simpson Miller and that she is supported by Peter Bunting.
The angry group was supported by delegates, purportedly from Lisa Hanna’s constituency, who were equally disgruntled and blamed her for the recent division losses in the local government elections.
"Lisa create history a South East St Ann; she mek Labourite a rule Moneague and Labourite never win deh in 30 to 40 years now," said one delegate.
Meanwhile, Simpson Miller, while addressing party members at the meeting Sunday reportedly said she would not be seeking re-electing as party president but would remain to help rebuild the PNP.
