Member of Parliament for St Andrew North Eastern Delroy Chuck is criticising Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) leader, Andrew Holness, for hiring on-and-off party member, Abe Dabdoub to advise him on constitutional matters.

Speaking at a constituency conference for West Portland Member of Parliament Daryl Vaz yesterday, Chuck labelled Dabdoub as an enemy of the party.

He questioned the rationale behind hiring Dabdoub, saying he has cost the JLP dearly in the past:

Dabdoub left the JLP in 2006 and after the 2007 general elections, which the JLP won, Vaz was taken to court by Dabdoub over his dual citizenship.

According to Chuck, there is no one in the JLP more knowledgeable and familiar with constitutional matters than himself.

However, he says despite this the leadership has never seen it fit to ask of him for expert advice on such matters, yet, they have appointed him opposition spokesman on justice.
