Jamaican opposition leader Portia Simpson Miller has reclaimed leadership of the country in a dramatic political comeback.
The ruling Labour party conceded defeat on Thursday after winning just 22 of the 63 parliamentary seats at stake in the general election.
The speech was not only deviod of message to the Jamaican people she spent time thanking even the dead for her election victory. The speech was way too long and boring.
PSM should simply say thanks, give a message about moving the country forward and send persons home.
Peter Phillips may have stolen her thunder, but his address was more of what we expect from our leader.
Seems she did not come prepared with a message to the business people, ordinary Jamaicans, nothing. Nothing thus far in her speech to report in the media, this is unlike anything we have ever seen before !
This question was posed to Samuda who downplayed it, but as far as I am concerned this group need to be disbanded as they are as dumb as they come. Many blunders, issuing TVJ managers email to the public and then telling people to put their X beside the head, which they did.
G2K cannot cross it, DWL
Is this what this election had boiled down to ” eating a food”.
- Low Int rate – No interest to live off
- Stable dollar – can’t make no money from devaluation.
- Crime makes money, crime down, money low
- The “runnings” cut down, man can’t eat nuh food.”
Interestingly many JLP supporters saying they did not vote or were not going to vote as the JLP government ” box food outta dem mouth”.
This appears to be what the deputy leader Desmond Mckenzie believes has lead to the JLP losing the polls to the PNP. With a voter turn of just 48% it appears that the PNP was better able to mobilize its base and get them to the polling stations.
Others are suggesting that the hardship Jamaicans have undergone over the last 4 yrs is the main reason the JLP supporters stayed away which resulted in the PNP victory.
