KINGSTON, JAMAICA, June 8, 2020: A re-energised and united Parliamentary Group of the People’s National Party (PNP) left a highly anticipated meeting at Mico University, today, unified, determined to re-doubling and combining their efforts and commitment to win the upcoming general.

Party President, M.P. Dr Peter Phillips, in his brief presentation told the group that the national campaign will be re-imagined, targeting all avenues of media channels and platforms, including all digital spaces as the Party is now election ready; and the base of supporters is well motivated.

The Parliamentary Group which comprises Members of Parliament and Senators held frank and constructive dialogue as they advanced plans for the upcoming general elections. They also discussed significant challenges to the Jamaican economy and the Jamaican people, which the PNP will address as the next government.

With full recognition of the support of the majority of well-thinking Jamaicans, the meeting said the continuing surge in crime and violence, the collapse of the Jamaican economy and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, altogether will unleash untold pain and suffering across vulnerable communities. The PNP, which reaffirmed itself as the Party of the people, is prepared to respond to these challenges.

“With an incompetent government and the breakdown of good governance as demonstrated in the handling of the education portfolio, the economy and nation security, the Jamaican people are rightfully looking to the PNP to stand up for them,” Dr Phillips told the meeting.

The Parliamentary Group expressed its confidence that a united PNP is poised for an election win based on the ongoing work in the seats it now holds and the focus it has placed on winning an additional 15 constituencies.
