South East St Ann member of parliament-elect Lisa Hanna is accusing three People’s National Party councillors in her constituency of working to foil her re-election campaign.

In a post on social media yesterday thanking residents of the constituency for returning her to Gordon House, Hanna said she triumphed despite the odds and continuous political espionage against her.

She also said the three councilors did not go out to vote for her.

Hanna thanked those she said had not listened to the councillors and were not intimidated by their liaisons to get them to stay home or vote for her opponent.

In mid-2015, Lydia Richards, the councillor for the Bensonton Division, unsuccessfully challenged Hanna for the right to represent the PNP in the general elections.

Richards was supported by Lloyd Garrick of the Moneague division and Lambert Weir of the Claremont division.
