People’s National Party President, Portia Simpson Miller has warned members of her party that she will not allow them to make comments that could bring the party into disrepute.

Simpson Miller sent the warning while speaking at a North West Clarendon constituency conference last night.

However she did not point to any specific incident.

The PNP has seen various clashes among members in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, the car tyres of Evon Redman, who is seeking to unseat Raymond Pryce in North East St Elizabeth, were slashed by persons believed to be supporting the MP.
