Disciplinary action sought against Lisa Hanna

A resolution was brought to yesterday's NEC seeking to have disciplinary action taken against South East St Ann member of parliament, Lisa Hanna.

However, Chairman of the PNP, Robert Pickersgill says the resolution failed as it was not properly brought to the NEC.

The resolution sought to have a three-member disciplinary panel established by the party’s executive committee to enquire into Hanna’s conduct.

It also moved for the South East St Ann Constituency Committee to be dissolved and a Caretaker Committee established to administer the constituency until the disciplinary matter is resolved.

The resolution brought before the NEC accused Hanna of undermining the organisational integrity, reputation and invincibility of the PNP in the constituency. 

According to the resolution, Hanna supported two ousted members of the PNP who ran as independent candidates in the local government elections. 

The resolution also claimed that Hanna failed to support Simpson Miller in a constituency tour and public meeting in the Claremont division ahead of the local government elections. 

It says Hanna's actions resulted in a reduced PNP majority in the Claremont division and victory for the Jamaica Labour Party in the Moneague division.
