2011 election loss not Holness' fault - Charles
Veteran politician and Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) stalwart Pearnel Charles Tuesday night revealed that the party's failure in the 2011 general election was no fault of party leader Andrew Holness.
Addressing delegates during a special meeting in West Portland, Charles said the blame game for the party's failure at the polls had been unfairly and unjustly cast on the JLP leader, who he claimed was "skilfully advised" by senior members including those seeking to dethrone him.
