Outspoken People’s National Party Member of Parliament, Dr Dayton Campbell has sought to clarify remarks which suggested that he would not welcome former members of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) into the ranks of the PNP.

Campbell has faced criticisms after he complained about the "laborisation" of the PNP despite his repeated claim that he has no problem with former JLP members joining the party.

The critics have also bashed the first term MP for his claim that there is a tendency for persons having trouble in the JLP to switch to the PNP without taking time to learn what it is to be a Comrade.

He also told cheering supporters that he does not wish to reject former labourites as the party welcomes additional numbers.

However, Campbell argued that the PNP represents, “Progress Not Promises” and anyone who joins the party must understand that.
