I support Dr Peter David Phillips

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I, Valenton Wint, caretaker/candidate for South Western St Ann, am certainly not ‘undecided nor unknown’. I need no protection or anonymity under the banner ‘unknown or undecided’ as I stand resolute in full support of Dr Peter David Phillips to be re-elected and to remain the president of this noble party, the Peoples’ National Party.

It may be obvious by now that in the previous presidential elections I stood squarely beside the then president, The Most Honourable Portia Simpson Miller, former prime minister of Jamaica.

I now openly declare that I am neither undecided nor unknown as I give my full and unequivocal support to our standing president, Dr Peter David Phillips. I do so on the grounds that I consider him to be the most competent person for the job as party leader, president and future prime minister.

Record of performance

His record of performance in the ministries that he led speaks for him. In addition to this, his erudition, congeniality and tact in his leadership no doubt makes him the best person for the job at this time.

While I admire the valiant and may I say brave-hearted approach of Comrade Peter Bunting to challenge for the leadership, I am fully convinced that Dr Peter David Phillips is the man for the job.

It is a well-known fact that the Peoples’ National Party is a democratic party, as this is one of our core principles and, therefore, a challenge to the leadership or to any other position is not a new phenomenon. However, I believe that together we are stronger. We should at this time remain ‘One PNP powerful together’.
