A firm decision is yet to be made on the membership application of former Jamaica Labour Party candidate for east rural St Andrew, Joan Gordon Webley to the People's National Party (PNP).

PNP Chairman Robert Pickersgill says there was no further discussion on her application during today's sitting of the National Executive Council (NEC), although yesterday's meeting was dominated by a trade of sharp views about her application.

A decision is to be made after the NEC is furnished with more information from the party's executive. 

Gordon Webley has been facing stiff opposition from some PNP members because of a comment she made on the campaign trail years ago when she referred to the party president Portia Simpson Miller as a jezebel.

Meanwhile, speaking with The Gleaner-Power 106 News today, Gordon-Webley refused to comment on her future in politics if the PNP rejects her application.
She says the NEC is within its right to ask for more information if it needs clarification.
