Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Leader, Andrew Holness, is urging young Jamaicans not to give up on Jamaica's politics as they stand to be affected the greatest by government policies. 

He says the country's youth should not give up especially as most have mainly experienced the policies of the People's National Party.

The PNP has been in power for just under 22 of the last 29 years.

Holness argues that he cannot blame many young people who want to leave Jamaica to seek a better life for themselves. 

According to him, policymakers have failed to keep their promise to provide opportunities such as jobs. 

However, he says for the next general elections, young people should vote for his party which he says represents change and a new vision.
