Member of Parliament elect for St. Ann South Eastern, Lisa Hanna has retained her seat following a magisterial recount.
The results of the recount were announced on Wednesday (September 16).
Hanna took to social media following the announcement to thank God and her constituents for returning her as MP.
“Now that the magisterial recount is over, we’re ready to move forward”, said Hanna.
“The people of SESA have been clear in their message, that notwithstanding the constituency projects and infrastructure improvements made over the last four years, they need more. This year has been particularly challenging for us as people’s lives and livelihoods have been adversely affected and their immediate needs and concerns are central to their physical survival,” she added.
As Hanna prepares to return to Parliament she says she is committed to delivering better service for the people of her St Ann constituency.
Hanna urged her supporters and fellow comrades to begin the hard work of listening to the people, and rebuilding the party following the defeat of the party at the polls on September 3.
“The people have delivered a message and we must listen. Jamaicans are facing unprecedented times, and as I have said already, we absolutely have to ‘lick a new gear, and meet this moment,” added Hanna.
