Speaking in Black River, St Elizabeth Sunday night, Phillips again spoke on the matter.

But in Granville, St James, Holness received cheers when he said he would not react.

"Mi nah mek no man draw my tongue," Holness said. 

"We say up, because many are sitting down watching an incompetent government bringing the country down," said Holness.

"We say up, because for too long we have been down. It is time for prosperity. It is time for our economy to grow," he told the gathering.
adding that the JLP has had a track record of building Jamaica.

Quoting from recent polls, Holness also said the numbers clearly show that the JLP is better at governance.

He appealed to the undecided voters urging them to go out and vote on election day.
