Jamaicans to vote on February 25th

Jamaicans will go to the polls on February 25 to elect a new government.

Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller made the highly anticipated announcement at a rally of her governing People’s National Party in Half-Way Tree in St Andrew a short while ago..

Simpson Miller also announced that nomination day is February 9th.

In the last general election held December 29, 2011, the PNP won 42 of the 63 seats. The JLP took the remaining 21.

Overall, the PNP has won nine general elections since 1944, to the JLP’s seven, which includes the 1983 poll when the PNP boycotted the activity, griping about what it considered a bogus voters’ list — something which had characterised local elections, especially between the three decades of 1962 and 1992.

    Where is the young intellectuals where is the young visionaries,
    For Jamaica to move forward in to the twenty first century, the old guards need to hank up there boots,
    Many may not agree with me, but look what Margaret T did in the UK in the eighties, she turn the country around, Jamaica need a fresh ideas. Jamaica needs Visionary,

    I hope the new prime minister will be a young dogmatic intellectual, who has the energy and the will power to deliver, as did Margaret T did for the UK in the eighties, .
