Hanna has said she believes it’s time for renewal within the PNP, particularly at the level of vice president and general secretary.

In the meantime, Hanna has refused to say who she will support to take over leadership of the PNP when Portia Simpson Miller relinquishes the presidency.

Member of Parliament for St Andrew East Central, Dr Peter Phillips, and Manchester Central MP, Peter Bunting, have already stated their interest in taking over.

However, Hanna says Simpson Miller must be allowed to leave on her own timetable.

Hanna was speaking on Cliff Hughes Online on Power 106 FM.
