PNP Goes Down in Jamaica Elections

And on Thursday night, the Jamaica Labour Party defeated the People’s National Party and won thirty-three of the sixty-three seats in Parliament. Andrew Holness, the leader of the J.L.P.’s message of deep tax cuts and massive job creation won over the voters who have withstood years of I.M.F. austerity measures.  He told jubilant supporters that the J.L.P. will grow the Jamaican economy, create jobs and provide accountable and responsive government. The forty-three-year-old told the crowd of supporters that the mission is to move Jamaica from poverty to prosperity. Simpson-Miller of the P.N.P. conceded defeat to a crowd of somber voters. We will have more on the elections in Caribbean Newsline, coming up after our local newscast.
