It was Deja vu in Christiana, Manchester North East Friday night as the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) sought to reclaim it's 1980 victory mantra 'deliverance is near'.

Councillor for Christiana Division, Desmond Harrison, told the JLP mass rally that "Jamaicans are being given another chance."

"We have one more chance to rescue the island of Jamaica," declared Harrison.

He added: "We were never this poor in the history of this island, Jamaica."

Harrison, told the crowd that the JLP Leader, Andrew Holness, and the party's candidate for Manchester North East, Audley Shaw, are ready to go on the rescue mission.

"We are ready for leadership," said Harrison, noting that there are only six days left to for voters to make the decision.

According to Harrison, Shaw has touched the lives of every household in his constituency.

He charged that the People's National Party is in denial that Shaw is in control of Manchester North East.

The PNP's Valenton Wint will be challenging Shaw.

"Him a fool himself but I can't blame him. He is from a party known to contain the biggest set of propagandists," Harrison said.
