Andrew Holness says the JLP must shape itself into the political organisation that best represents the views, dreams and aspirations of Jamaicans who are frustrated with the political process.

Leader of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), Andrew Holness, is urging uncommitted voters to get off "the fence" saying those who don’t vote are simply expressing a desire for things to remain the same.

He threw out the challenge to the uncommitted even as he urged party members and supporters to seek to attract these persons to the JLP.

Holness says the JLP must shape itself into the political organisation that best represents the views, dreams and aspirations of Jamaicans who are frustrated with the political process.

He says it’s important that Labourites reach out to uncommitted voters because they have the power to impact the political landscape in a significant way.

He was speaking yesterday at a Divisional Conference in the South Manchester community of Grove Town.
