Morais Guy:

The minister without portfolio found himself in a fire storm as the Government's point man on the proposed amendments to the Road Traffic Act. Guy had to be dodging potholes, and he sought to defend the proposal that motorists who crash their vehicles into road furnishings such as guard rails and signs will be forced to pay, through their insurance companies, for repair or replacement.

Ronald Thwaites:

The Education Minister spent much of the week trying to allay fears that his announcement about students who sat the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) would be placed at schools closest to where they live was designed to block some students from certain high-profile schools.

Shanique Myrie:

The woman who hit the headlines when she beat Barbados in a free-movement case at the Caribbean Court of Justice, was back in the news as she announced an intention to enter representational politics on a PNP ticket.

Andrew Holness:

The Opposition Leader was back on the front pages as he urged the Portia Simpson Miller-led administration to explore ways to give members of the Diaspora a constituent vote in Jamaica.

Sharon Hay-Webster:

The one-time Comrade-turned-Labourite had indicated that she would challenge Gregory Mair for the right to represent the Jamaica Labour Party in the North East St Catherine seat in the next general elections. But reports surfaced last week that she had been turned down by the party, even though there has been no official confirmation so far.

Kaliese Spencer:

The in-form 400 metres hurdler continued to sparkle on the Diamond League invitational series with another victory, which left her in pole position to once again claim the diamond.
