THE EDITOR, Sir:
I sincerely agree with the view that the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) needs strong leadership in this critical time. The called-for strong leadership is not only timely, but it's an appropriate one. The JLP seems to be concerned with its leadership capacity and, therefore, is embarking on a journey of strong leadership role, if they're going to have a chance in the next general election. As delegates and supporters seek to campaign on those initiative, it somehow appears that Mr Holness outlined a clear strategy for the party succession in the next general election, which has yet to materialise in his campaign. Though Mr Holness' campaign shows areas of strength, the called-for strong leadership and strategy that Labourites are looking for seems to be going well with Mr Shaw's campaign. Rather than throwing out words to his competitor, Mr Shaw seeks to lay down a clearer strategy during his campaigns that will obviously take Jamaica forward.
During Mr Shaw campaign, he outlined some major critical issues that need urgent attention. Mr Shaw's vision for the launching of a revolution in education is a remarkable one. When we have a government that is pushing towards education, certainly it is heading in the right direction. Among other visions, Mr Shaw would also like for Jamaica to be the logistics hub and trans-shipment capital of the Caribbean, which indeed captivates the heart of a true visionary. Therefore, all Labourites must work together to achieve the goals of the party.
