The People’s National Party (PNP) kicks off activities around its 76th annual conference today with some members reportedly anxious the Government still has a lot to do after 30 months in power.



PNP Chairman Robert Pickersgill, told a press conference yesterday that the anxiety has been expressed throughout the six Regional Executive Councils, among delegates and leaders at the constituency and divisional levels.



He says the party officers, including the president Portia Simpson Miller, will have to use this weekend’s party conference to answer questions and quantify the achievements to date, compared with the environment in which the PNP has had to govern.



The party’s Annual Conference is to be held at various venues across the Corporate Area with activities culminating at the National Arena on Sunday.



There is little interest in internal elections this year, with the PNP president for nine years, come February, not expected to face any challenge.



Neither are the four PNP vice-presidents Angela Brown Burke, Dr Fenton Ferguson, Derrick Kellier and Noel Arscott.
