Chastanet Engages Public

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet capitalized on Friday morning’s swearing-in of Sir Emmanuel Neville Cenac as Governor General, by engaging in some public relations with the small crowd of onlookers, who stood at a distance from the parliament building in anticipation of something big happening.

The biggest thing to happen to them, however, was when Chastanet, on arriving at parliament, headed straight to the crowd to mingle and shake hands with whoever wanted to do so with him. His bold move was rewarded as several in the crowd greeted him and shook hands with him.

  1. Lucians,……support this man;…….forget about those empty shells who have taken you for granted for all those years;…….the governor general is a colonial relic;…look to the future……stop wasting your energy on stuff that don’t put food on your table!!…

  2. A more unifying figure could have been dug up instead of this divisive and controversial figure cenac. This says a lot sbout Chastanet’s bullying and vindictive mentality. It only shows he cares much much more about partisanship than than the unity and progress of the country. This man is no good for the country.
