Time to cut the nonsense, Portia tells protesting Comrades
The President of the People's National Party (PNP) Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller has called for comrades to put an end to protests over prospective candidates and instead unite.
There have been unease in some constituencies over their prospective candidates.
In the latest protest in North Trelawny this week, comrades insisted that they do not want JP White to replace attorney general Patrick Atkinson.
Instead, the comrades want outgoing East Rural St Andrew MP, Damion Crawford.
But with an election looming, Simpson Miller told The Gleaner today that the comrades should do away with the disunity:
"If your fellow comrade is in trouble then you should try to help that one," she said.
"It is time that they cut the nonsense and begin to move ahead," Simpson Miller said.
"We're all not going to be loving the same person. We're all not going to be wanting to support the same person but what we should do is what is right in the interest of the Jamaican people," she said.
