WHILE INSISTING that Prime Minister Bruce Golding should resign because of his double-talk in the Manatt scandal, the president of the People’s National Party (PNP) has also called for serious introspection within her own party.
In a sobering presentation to the National Executive Council (NEC) at the University of the West Indies, Mona, yesterday, Portia Simpson Miller cautioned against rejoicing over the sordid developments that have gripped the ruling Jamaica Labour Party (JLP).
“Whatever the outcome of this situation, let us not gloat. Let us not be uncharitable,” Simpson Miller stated. The PNP president encouraged disenchanted Jamaicans not to lose hope in the political process. “We also know that some of these Jamaicans are not happy with us as a party either. Comrades, we need to recognise that. We must be big enough to recognise it, mature enough to admit it and strong enough to address it.
