Opposition to Jamaicans: Don't allow PNP to use political spoils to trick you

Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Leader Andrew Holness is urging Jamaicans not to allow the governing People's National Party (PNP) to trick them into voting it back into power. 

Holness lashed the PNP for using political spoils to trick Jamaican voters into believing that they would implement new policies to uplift citizens. 

He pointed to the much touted logistics hub project by the government, which he says is yet to materialise.  

He said the governing party lacks sound policies and the voters should reject the PNP and embrace the JLP which he says will present suitable policies to improve the lives of Jamaicans.

Meanwhile, he has attacked the PNP's characterisation of the JLP's 2007-2011 period in office as the four missing years. 

Holness noted that during those years, the party helped to transform Jamaica, a process he says was stopped when the party was voted out. 

The JLP leader argued that the PNP does not want the people to remember the achievements during his party's last time in office. 

It is widely expected that general elections, which are due by next year, could be held this year.
