CLARENDON, Jamaica:

Veteran politician Mike Henry has indicated that he might not continue as member of parliament for Central Clarendon past the next general election.




An emergency meeting was reportedly called by the Jamaica Labour Party MP on Thursday night to discuss his political future.



Henry says the decision to call the meeting was triggered by a number of factors including discussions in the media in relation to age of some politicians.



According to the 80-year-old politician, there are some who seem to have a problem with people of a certain age being MPs and he wanted to get the opinion of the executive on his continued service.



Henry says the matter was discussed at length and the members asked him to continue serving until the next general elections are called.



Henry, who has been in politics for 35 years, says he will only stay a maximum of four more years.
