In response to a statement by Chief of staff Lionel Max Hurst, MP Maria Browne released the following response to Antigua News Room via Facebook.
Antigua News Room, there will be no motorcade. Note that there was not even an announcement about one.
And this thing about “to make her presence felt” would have NEVER been the motive.
The branch wished to show last respects for Sir Lester by driving through, staying in their cars, but owing to the situation with COVID-19, have opted not to.
Instead, a statue will be placed in the constituency in Sir Lester’s honour. Please stop publishing with misleading headlines.”
This is what Hurst said on radio today:
CHIEF OF STAFF LIONEL MAX HURST:
“Last night the Rural East Constituency Branch met.
One of the decisions coming out of their meeting last night is that they’re going to hold a motorcade in the constituency on Saturday in the afternoon.
They exactly exact time has not been agreed they want to ensure that the presence of the the Rural East parliamentary representative is felt right.
So they will lead a small motorcade throughout the constituency led by the parliamentary representative Maria who who will lead the parade.”
