THE EDITOR, Sir:
The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) is not looking desperate.
Unlike the People's National Party (PNP), which is so eager for a second term in office, the JLP is not attempting to 'sweet up' the electorate with election spending. PNP's desperation has led them to take credit for JLP's work. They are trying to convince people that they stabilised an economy that had already been stabilised by the JLP.
Additionally, in the past four months, the PNP has been doing some things that were long overdue. For example, they have adjusted the National Housing Trust (NHT) loan ceiling from $4.5 million to $5.5 million, which was last adjusted in 2010 by the JLP. The PNP has also promised 100,000 jobs if they are re-elected. Whenever I hear these baseless and erroneous arguments, I cringe.
I can't understand why PNP is so desperate for a second term in office when they are not doing anything to help the country, and they are not trying to take the country out of poverty. They are so desperate that they are making promises for this election, and they haven't fulfilled their promises from 2011.
