Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) deputy leader Desmond McKenzie has taken to the platform at a party meeting in West Rural St Andrew declaring that it is not to late for the People's National Party (PNP) to say sorry for its "attack" on the party leader Andrew Holness over his house.

Today, Holness responded to public demands led by the PNP to answer several questions about how he acquired his multi-million dollar Beverly Hills property.

"It is not too late for the PNP to repent and confess that it has done wrong by Holness," declared McKenzie.

He said Holness was being pressured because he was not from the family or class favoured by the PNP.

"Stop beating down Andrew Holness, we tired a it now," McKenzie said.

He said, however that he was heartened by the support that Labourites have been giving Holness.

"Ask yourself the question: Why is the PNP behaving in the manner they are behaving. Andrew Holness no tek weh no PNP woman. Him no nyam no PNP white fowl. What is it that they have against Andrew Holness that they have launched this dutty nasty personal attack?"

According to McKenzie, the PNP should campaign on the issues.
