#JaVotes2016: Holness taunted by PNP supporters
Leader of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Andrew Holness was taunted by orange-clad supporters of the People's National Party (PNP), a short while ago.
Holness was touring his constituency of St Andrew West Central to ensure that the electoral process was proceeding without glitches, when he ventured into areas in which residents support the PNP.
Prior to this, Holness was greeted well by supporters of both the JLP and the PNP.
The greetings were returned by the JLP leader.
Things changed when he drove into the polling station located in the St Mary of the Virgin Church on Molynes Road and Headley Avenue.
Shouts of "Portia!" and "Patrick!" punctured the hitherto quiet atmosphere.
Patrick Roberts is the PNP candidate, who is attempting to unseat Holness as Member of Parliament for St Andrew West Central.
Clearly energised by Holness' presence and closely watched by a team of security personnel, the crowd of comrades continued to chant "No Labourite!"
Holness, however, continued his meet and greet.
The comrades refused to cease even during a tender moment when Holness held a young baby wrapped in a green blanket, saying that his time at the centre had expired.
The nearby Drewsland is a PNP stronghold. Similar sentiments were expressed by residents inside the Drewsland community - a PNP stronghold - which was quiet until Holness arrived in the area
