The People's National Party (PNP) has released a statement expressing shock at the passing of St Mary South East Member of Parliament Dr Winston Green.

PNP president Dr Peter Phillips said the death was untimely.

"Dr Green committed his life professionally and politically to serving the Jamaican people. He was a dedicated servant of the people and a man faithful to his commitment to his family, his profession, his constituents and his party," Phillips said. 

The Opposition Leader said over the past weekend, Green spent long hours in his constituency hosting a back-to-school dental clinic, providing dental reports for students in St Mary at no cost.

"Jamaica has lost a great son. Our heartfelt condolences to his children Ashley and Wade, his family, friends and colleagues. He will be truly missed," Dr. Phillips said.
