Carl Gilchrist, Gleaner Writer
First Vice-president of the People’s National Party Youth Organisation (PNPYO), Kevin Smith, has resigned.
Smith is heading to Harvard to study law.
In an interview with The Gleaner last night Smith said he stepped down from the position in September.
He said “it is a bitter sweet moment” but he is happy to be joining the prestigious institution.
“I am happy, it’s an illustrious law school, so I’m really happy about that achievement but at the same time a lot was going on here for me in Jamaica.
“I’m leaving good friends [and] family, that’s the bitter part of it.
Nevertheless I have to pursue my own personal endeavours.”
Asked if he would return to politics upon his return to Jamaica, Smith said he wants to make a contribution.
Smith leaves later this month.
