Henry ... the PNP is making up the allegations to serve as distractions from its governance record.

The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) has dismissed claims that its members have been supplying the People's National Party (PNP) with information on Opposition Leader Andrew Holness.

According to JLP campaign director, Mike Henry, there can be no truth to such claim.

He also said the PNP is making up the allegations to serve as distractions from its governance record.

PNP General Secretary Paul Burke had told The Gleaner/Power 106 News that some of the questions it's raising about Holness' integrity are based on information being supplied by JLP members.

However, Burke refused to reveal any details about the Labourites only saying the PNP has been getting information since the bruising JLP leadership race in November 2013 between Holness and Audley Shaw.

For months after the JLP leadership race, internal divisions among senior members played out in the public. 

However, the factions appeared to have united last year as the country began preparing for elections.

The PNP has been pressuring Holness to release his finances publicly and he has said he will do so.

The party has also raised questions about how Holness is funding his house being built in Beverly Hill, St Andrew.
