PNP supporters upbeat as party's annual conference gets under way
Hundreds of excited People's National Party (PNP) supporters have been streaming into Independence Park as the public session of the party's 85th annual conference gets under way at the National Arena in St Andrew.
The supporters, clad in their orange, say the time has come for a change in Jamaica's leadership.
"A Mark Golding time now," said Norma, a member of Golding's South St Andrew constituency.
"JLP fi come out now," her friend Juliet chimed in.
Both said they were very upbeat about the party's chances at the elections and were in a jubilant mood.
While the usual creative conference fashion was not as abundant as previous years, supporters on the outside enjoyed the party-like atmosphere as the latest dancehall hits blasted from large speakers.
Meanwhile, General Secretary, Dr Dayton Campbell, said things have been proceeding smoothly, so far, and the party's supporters are very energetic.
Campbell said he was expecting a massive turnout.
