Simpson Miller: A month after taking office, the government has no clear plan for economic management and growth.

The People's National Party (PNP) has ripped into the Andrew Holness led administration saying it has not brought anything new to the governance of Jamaica.

In a press briefing Tuesday afternoon, PNP president and Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller said the programmes announced in last week's Throne Speech were a continuation of the PNP's 'legacy'.

Simpson Miller said they are a major endorsement of the previous PNP government.

Meanwhile, the PNP president attacked the Andrew Holness Administration over election promises she claims may not be fulfilled.

According to her, a month after taking office, the government has "no clear plan for economic management and growth".

The Opposition Leader also argued that "the JLP cannot be trusted".

The Holness government has admitted that funds it thought were set aside to fund a contentious income tax plan are not available.

But Prime Minister Holness has said his administration will stick to all commitments made in the lead up to the general elections.
